Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon driver of the No.9 PNC Bank Honda and the Verizon IndyCar Series points leader goes into this weekend’s Honda Indy Toronto aiming to bounce back following a disappointing race in Iowa last time out. Looking ahead to this weekend, the Iceman who leads the championship by 33 points from Josef Newgarden said:
I don’t think we really had the weekend we wanted to in Iowa after having a string of five or so podiums over the last six races. We stayed with it as best we could, though, in the PNC Bank car and had a reasonable points day with some of the other top point contenders having issues in the race. So, it’s on to Toronto where we’ve had some success in the past. It’s a great city that I know we all love coming to, and I hope it’s a good show Sunday and a good performance for the No. 9 team.
Ed Jones in the No.10 NTT DATA Honda is looking forward to this weekend’s race saying:
We’re really looking forward to Toronto this weekend. We were very strong at the last two street circuit races in Detroit, and I hope we can continue that on Sunday. I’ll be hoping to keep up that run of strong results going for the team. We had a rough go of it last weekend in Iowa and will be pushing hard to turn that around in the NTT DATA car this weekend.
