AJ Foyt Racing’s Conor Daly is excited to be racing at Iowa Speedway this weekend for the Iowa Corn 300, round eleven of the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series schedule.
Speaking ahead of the event he stated:
Iowa is both very physically and mentally demanding. I really enjoyed racing there back in the (Mazda) Road to Indy days and hope to have some success in an Indy car there as well. Short oval racing is always exciting, so we hope to come out of it with a lot of experience gained and a good finish.”
Daly’s team mate Carlos Munoz is also looking forward to the race in Iowa saying:
Iowa Speedway has been a hard track for me, but I do like the corn there! I find it really challenging because it is a low grip level track and it is also bumpy. You have to think ahead – it’s fast and you have to think how you’re going to make a pass–think for 2 or 3 laps on how to do it before you actually do it. It’s a tough track to race. Recently we’ve made a lot of progress with the car setups because as a team we are understanding the car more. Hopefully we can continue that progress and get a good result.”
