Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon in the No.9 NTT DATA Honda is hoping to to bounce back from a tough few races this weekend at Pocono Raceway for the ABC Supply 500.

Ganassi have a strong history here after they scored a podium sweep 1,2,3 when the Verizon IndyCar Series returned in 2013.

The Iceman is currently third in the championship just eight points behind leader Josef Newgarden with four races remaining this season.

Speaking ahead of the race this weekend he commented by saying:

For us in 2013, it was a great moment to bring back open wheel racing to Pocono with a win and a 1-2-3 finish for the team. You have to put a lot of hard work into getting everything right on this track. Nothing is a given here. We’ve slipped to third in the championship with four to go here recently, but are only eight points out. This is the time to really start a string of strong finishes that will hopefully get you across the finish line in front of the other contenders.”

Tony Kanaan is hopeful that the No.10 NTT DATA Honda can go to victory lane this weekend.

Speaking ahead of the race he commented by saying:

I think it was a really good thing for our team to have a few weeks off to regroup and get back in the game before heading into the final swing of the season. Pocono is definitely the type of track that I normally thrive at, and the ‘Tricky Triangle’ is such an interesting place to race with the three completely different corners. You have to get so many little things right to suit each corner, before you can really be successful. The No. 10 NTT Data Honda is definitely due for a win and Pocono would be a great place for that to happen.

Max Chilton in the No.8 Gallagher Honda had a busy summer break, the Englishman returned to the UK last weekend for his wedding to fiancee Chloe.

Speaking ahead of the race this weekend he commented by saying:

“The three corners are all very different at Pocono, and based on that, I think setup will be a compromise to really get the Gallagher car handling right. We need to make sure we’re in the mix at the end of the race, as this is a long 500-mile event. I’m looking forward to being back behind the wheel after a few weeks off.”

Charlie Kimball in the No.83 Tresiba® Honda is looking forward to getting back on track saying:

“After a few weeks away from the track, the Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing team is more motivated than ever to get out there and finish this Verizon IndyCar Series season on a high note. Pocono Raceway is such a unique track, by design. You really have to tackle each of its three corners very differently, which is what makes it so challenging. That aspect plus the 500 miles equals a rewarding race when you can get it all right.”
