The Dale Coyne Racing Team are back to fielding two cars for this weekend’s Chevrolet Dual In Detroit after having Pippa Mann and Bryan Clauson on board for the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil last weekend.
Gabby Chaves driving the No.19 Boy Scouts of America Honda is taking part in his second Chevrolet Dual In Detroit and having finished the Indianapolis 500 in 20th place having started the race in 21st place. Speaking ahead of the Chevrolet Dual In Detroit, Chaves commented by saying:
We head into Detroit as we try to keep building on what we’ve started. I’ve had two races with the Dale Coyne Racing team, and for myself, after being back in the car for the whole month of May, I can really get going now. I’m really looking forward to it. Detroit was my first Top 10 of the year last season so I think we’re set up for a good run. The Detroit track location is fantastic, but it’s a rough circuit, it’ll beat you up and beat the cars up so we have to work hard to make sure we have a really good car.”
Conor Daly in the No.98 Jonathan Byrd’s Hospitality and Restaurant Group Honda will be hoping for better races this weekend after retiring from the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil.
Daly like Chaves is competing in his second Chevrolet Dual In Detroit event. Speaking ahead of this weekend’s events Daly commented by saying:
I’m excited about the Detroit race weekend. Last year was really cool, we had a legit shot at winning the race. It was an awesome time, an awesome fight with a lot of good drivers and I’m just hoping for the same thing this year. I think it’s a great event. The doubleheader is really intense, two races in a weekend is a lot on the whole team. We just need to make sure that we’re all prepared and ready to go. I know I’ll be ready, and I know the guys will be ready. I just can’t wait. It should be fun. The track was super bumpy last year, so it will be interesting to see if it’s changed at all, other than that it’s a fun track to drive and race on and hopefully we can create some good racing.
