AJ Foyt Racing’s Conor Daly is looking forward to heading back to the scene of his first Verizon IndyCar Series podium having finished in second place here in race 1 in 2016.
Speaking ahead of this weekend’s action he commented by saying:
I love Detroit. It’s always where I get my best finish. I was second last year, and I want to win this year. This track is a lot of fun for me and having a doubleheader is great. Two races are always better than one! Should be fun!
Carlos Munoz heads to Detroit aiming for a strong result following a great drive at the Indianapolis 500 which saw him cone from 24th on the grid to finish in 10th place.
Speaking ahead of the Detroit double header, Munoz commented by saying:
Moving on from Indy to road courses makes for a really challenging week, because everyone is really tired — the mechanics, engineers and the drivers. And Detroit is a two-race event which makes it tough. Still, Detroit is where we’ve had a lot of success. We’ve qualified good, run good and I got my first win there in 2015. They’ve ground down the bumps on the backstretch, which will be nicer, but it’s still a challenging track. I’m looking forward to it.”
