Defending NTT IndyCar Series champion and winner last time out in Mid Ohio, Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda for Chip Ganassi Racing says he hopes that the team can challenge for victory in Pocono this weekend.
Speaking ahead of the race this weekend the Iceman said:
The Tricky Triangle… Pocono is really fast and produces great Indy car racing. It’s such a unique challenge to get everything right. The team swept the podium in 2013 and that is a perfect example of things going your way here when you get everything right. It’s a long race and it’s now time to roll the dice and take chances. Race wins are all that matter at this stage in the season if you want to have a shot at defending this championship title. I hope we come ready to race in the PNC Bank car and fight for the win.”
Felix Rosenqvist in the No.10 NTT DATA Honda is looking forward to the race this weekend he said:
“When you go to Pocono, I think it doesn’t matter if it’s Pocono or Indy or Texas – I just have a huge respect and you take more time. You allow yourself to just go up to speed more slow because, we all know what happens when you crash at 220, 230 mph. Physically and car-wise, it’s never a good thing. So I believe that everyone has to respect and give each other room. I’m very much aware I’m not a pro at the ovals yet. I think, though, we’ve made really good progress with the NTT DATA car. I tested at Gateway and I have to say I feel more and more confident every lap I turn on an oval. I still have much more to learn, but I’m sure my first good result on an oval is just around the corner.”
