Schmidt Peterson Motorsports James Hinchciffe recovered from a tough start to his home race weekend this morning as he and the team made some changes to the No.5 Arrow Electronics Honda before the second session. The Canadian ended the day with the fifth fastest time of the day a 01:02.1867s.
When asked by Paddock Eye what his favourite part of the circuit is the Mayor of HinchTown said Turn 3 but he also said that he enjoys the high speed nature of the main straight.
Hinch said that he is not concerned with the pit-lane due to his qualifying position from Iowa which has dictated his pit box for this weekend and he feels that he should have any problems entering his box during the weekend.
Hinchcliffe also confirmed that positioning of the car will be very important this weekend.
