Schmidt Peterson Motorsports James Hinchcliffe in the No.5 Arrow Electronics Honda heads to the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 presented by Valvoline this weekend hoping for another strong showing.
The Mayor of HinchTown had an extremely strong run last time out in Pocono until he waa forced to retire from the race.
Speaking ahead of this weekend’s race, Hinch said:
Any time a new track is added to the schedule, people get pretty excited about it. Gateway is definitely one of those. The repave was really well done and the surface now is as nice as any track on the calendar. It should lead to some great racing. Obviously (Pocono) was a strong run for us until the crash, so we are hoping to be able to keep that speed and bring home a solid finish with the Arrow car.”
Sebastian Saavedra in the No.7 Lucas Oil Honda is excited about the race in Gateway this weekend.
The Colombian commented by saying:
“We’re looking forward to Gateway. It’s a place which, historically, has given great shows for the fans to watch. Speaking to Hinch (James Hinchcliffe), who tested there a bit ago, he enjoyed it very much and gave me really good viewpoints to help me get better prepared. I’m looking forward to working more with the No. 7 crew. We have created a great relationship and continuing work with the engineering staff to continue to evolve the car and bring some points home for the team.”
