The Mayor Of HinchTown heads to Mid-Ohio having missed the race here last year. Last time he raced here in 2014 with Andretti Autosport the Canadian finished the race on the podium in third place, he is hoping that he will be able to run up front again this weekend and speaking ahead of the race he commented by saying:
Mid-Ohio is one of the best races all year. The track is incredible for us as drivers, but I love the vibe there for fans as well. It’s got that big camping culture, all natural seating around the place, it’s just a cool setup. As far as races I’d like to attend as a fan one day, this one is up there. I was on the podium last time I raced there so I’m hoping to get the No. 5 Arrow Electronics car up front again.
Mikhail Aleshin heads to the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio sports car course having finished the Honda Indy Toronto in sixth place and speaking ahead of the race this weekend the Russian commented by saying:
Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course is one of the nicest tracks I’ve been to. It has a great configuration with lots of very technical sectors, lots of fun elevations and great fans. As a team, we’ve been improving all season in the No. 7 SMP Racing car and especially the last two races, so we’re looking to keep that positive momentum going into the next weekend.
