Ed Carpenter Racing’s JR Hildebrand heads into this weekend’s IndyCar Grand Prix at The Glen aiming to bounce back from a disappointing race at the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 presented by Valvoline last time out.
At Gateway Motorsports Park, Hildebrand in the No.21 Fuzzy’s Vodka Chevrolet was forced to retire from the race however he is excited to get to Watkins Glen, a track he has won at during his time in Indy Lights.
Speaking ahead of the race this weekend, Hildebrand said:
Watkins Glen is the track where I had my most memorable win in Indy Lights, getting the ‘W’ on the Fourth of July on the way to the championship (in 2009). It’s been a few years since I’ve raced at the Glen, so I’m excited to go back as we look to turn things around after a disappointing couple of weeks.
Spencer Pigot returns to the cockpit of the No.20 Fuzzy’s Vodka Chevrolet this weekend taking over from team owner Ed Carpenter and speaking ahead of the race he commented by saying:
Watkins Glen has quickly become one of my favorite tracks. Last year was the first time I had ever been there, and it’s easy to see why so many drivers love it. It’s incredibly fast and requires a ton of commitment to be fast there in an Indy car. It’s been a tough few races for the Fuzzy’s Vodka crew, so hopefully we can rebound this weekend and finish the season off with a few good results.
