Verizon IndyCar Series championship leader Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda goes into this weekend’s race, the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 at Gateway Motorsports Park leading the championship by 29 points from Andretti Autosport’s Alexander Rossi.
The Iceman has secured three victories so far this season and heads to St Louis off the back of a third place finish last time out at Pocono Raceway.
Speaking ahead of this weekend’s race he commented by saying:
Last year’s event at Gateway was really impressive. The owners and promoters did an amazing job with the race. The turnout was huge and I’m guessing that will only get better this year. I love racing at night and I hope we can get the PNC Bank car to the front and be up there competing for the win when it counts on Saturday night.
Ed Jones in the No.10 NTT DATA Honda goes into the looking forward to a strong performance under the lights.
Speaking ahead of the race he commented by saying:
Obviously we didn’t finish where we wanted to in Pocono and I’m glad we only have a short break between races to get right back into the car. We didn’t have a lot of time in Pocono to get the car right after (final) practice was canceled, so I’m looking forward to working on the car more this weekend and getting it right for what hopefully will be a really strong weekend and result for us in the NTT DATA car.”
