Schmidt Peterson Motorsports head into next weekend’s IndyCar Grand Prix of Indianapolis at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway off the back of a strong race at Barber Motorsports Park.
In Alabama last time out, James Hinchcliffe in the No.5 Arrow Electronics Honda claimed his first podium finish of the season when the Mayor of HinchTown finished the race in third place while Robert Wickens in the No.6 Lucas Oil Honda finished the race in fourth place.
The results give the Indianapolis based outfit a strong foundation to build on following what has been a solid start to the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series season for both Hinch and Wickens.
In his first race as a full-time Verizon IndyCar Series driver, the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg, Wickens secured his maiden Verizon P1 Award and challenged Alexander Rossi for the win. In only his second race for the team and his first oval race, the Canadian scored his first podium finish as he came home in second place behind race winner Josef Newgarden.
The Mayor of HinchTown has finished every race so far this season in the top ten including last time out at Barber Motorsports Park.
Hinch finished on the podium at the IndyCar Grand Prix of Indianapolis in 2016 where finished the race in third place.
