Andretti Autosport’s James Hinchcliffe in the No.29 Genesys Honda is hoping to be a contender this weekend in the GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course, a track which the Mayor of HinchTown enjoys.
Speaking ahead of the race, Hinch who has called his car Genevieve for this season said:
It’s funny, the time between Texas and now feels almost as long as between St. Pete and Texas, so I think everyone is super excited to get back to racing. I haven’t turned right since last September, but it’s a track I really enjoy driving, and any day at IMS is a good day! Hopefully we can get the Genesys car up there and be contenders, especially on such an historic weekend with the INDYCAR/NASCAR doubleheader.”
Zach Veach in the No.26 Gainbridge Honda who had a great start to his season in Texas where he came home in fourth place is looking forward to the GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis saying:
After the weeks off, I’m really excited to get back to a racetrack and jump into the thick of the season. We had a great run in our Gainbridge car at Texas and we’re looking forward to working as hard as we can to continue it here at the GMR Grand Prix. This weekend marks the first of five races in a 15-day span.
Colton Herta in the No.88 Capstone Honda had a great race in Texas where he came home in seventh place just ahead of Ryan Hunter Reay and speaking ahead of the race Hunter Reay:
Time to go racing again and no better place to do it than at the Brickyard. Obviously, we wish our fans and partners could be in attendance with us and hopefully, that time will come soon enough. It was great to get back in the car at Texas and after a strong qualifying effort, we had some electrical issues on the grid that put us a lap down. The 28 DHL team feels like that was a huge opportunity that got away so we’re looking to capitalize on that form for this weekend’s GMR Grand Prix.”
Alexander Rossi in the No.27 NAPA Auto Parts Honda is looking forward to the GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis and speaking ahead of the race he said:
After waiting for what seems like forever, we are kicking off a bit of a marathon stretch here with the GMR Grand Prix. This is quite a challenging track to get right, so our work will certainly be cut out for us with the expected heat, as well as the variable of the Aeroscreen. I am excited to be racing back in Indy, but we will certainly be missing our fans again this weekend.”
Marco Andretti in the No.98 US Concrete Honda is looking forward to the race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway this weekend and speaking ahead of the race he commented by saying:
This hasn’t been mine or the team’s strongest track, so I’m excited to try and turn that around this weekend. I always love coming to IMS. It’s a fun, challenging course that takes a different discipline of driving throughout the lap. It’ll be different without the fans this weekend but can’t wait to see them back here in August.”
