Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon who drives the No.9 PNC Bank Honda hopes that the team can continue their strong momentum from the Chevrolet Dual in Detroit weekend where the Iceman scored a win and fourth place this weekend at the DXC Technology 600 at Texas Motor Speedway.
Dixon heads into this weekend’s race in second place in the championship just five points behind series leader Will Power. Speaking ahead of Saturday nights race, he said:
We’ve won twice at Texas and we were in contention for a third victory last year until we got taken out so hopefully, we’ll have a shot at it again this weekend. The whole PNC Bank team has been pushing hard and we had good pace last weekend in Detroit, which we hope to continue into this weekend. The last three races have been good points races for us and we’ll be trying hard to do that again Saturday night.
Ed Jones in the No.10 NTT DATA Honda heads into the DXC Technology 600 at Texas Motor Speedway off the back of a third place finish in race 2 at the Chevrolet Dual in Detroit presented by Lear and speaking ahead of the race he said:
I’m very happy with the recent results. I had my best qualifying effort ever in Detroit of fourth, but we know there is more to be done to get us to the next level. It’s a big weekend for our sponsor NTT DATA in Texas and we want to put on a great show for them and give them something to cheer about.
