Ed Carpenter Racing team owner Ed Carpenter returns to the Verizon IndyCar Series this weekend for the ABC Supply 500 at Pocono Raceway. Carpenter is back in the No.20 Fuzzy’s Ultra Premium Vodka Chevrolet. Speaking ahead of the race this weekend, Carpenter commented by saying:
I have always really enjoyed racing an Indy car at Pocono. It’s such a challenging track that requires a lot of work to get the right setup on the car. While we’ve had good cars there in the past, good results have eluded us. It’s my second-to-last race of the year, so I’m hopeful we can get the finish we have been working towards!
JR Hildebrand has a best finish on an oval of second place where he finished in Iowa last month, equaling his best result in the Verizon IndyCar Series and speaking about the race this weekend he commented by saying:
I’m excited to put my first laps in around Pocono and just really looking forward to getting back on track! Pocono’s a very unique place that I know can be pretty tough, so I’m anxious to get out there and work with the team. Hopefully, we’ll put together another solid weekend at an oval race!
