Andretti Autosport’s Ryan Hunter Reay says he is looking forward to this weekend’s Iowa Corn 300 at Iowa Speedway as the Verizon IndyCar Series returns to action following a weekend off.
Hunter Reay goes into this weekend’s race in second place in the championship, 45 points behind series leader Scott Dixon and looking ahead to this weekend he said:
Iowa Speedway is certainly a special place for me and the team as a whole. I love short oval racing, but Iowa is one of my favorites. We’ve had lots of success here in the past, winning three times, however with a new car and a completely different aero package we have our work cut out for us to develop a new setup that will suit this car. We’re coming off a productive test, so we’re looking to keep the momentum we have rolling into the Iowa Corn 300 weekend and bring home another good result for the DHL Honda.
Marco Andretti in the No.98 US Concrete Honda commented on this weekend’s race by saying:
Iowa hasn’t been very nice to me the last few years, during the aerokit era, but I’m looking to re-gain my strength there. We had a strong test last week and we’ll build on that for the race this weekend.
Alexander Rossi in the No.27 NAPA Auto Parts Honda is looking forward to one of his facourite ovals saying:
“Iowa has been one of my favorite ovals since day one. I love how short, fast, banked, and bumpy it is. We had four very strong cars in the test last week so hopefully we can convert that into a big result for the NAPA team in order to get the momentum swinging back in our favor once more.
Zach Veach in the No.26 Relay Group 1001 Honda is looking forward to competing at Iowa Speedway in the Verizon IndyCar Series for the first time. The American commented by saying:
“I have a lot of good memories from Iowa coming through the ladder series. It’s a place that’s always challenging to race and that adds to what makes it a good show. We had one of our strongest tests last week there, so I’m really excited for what we can accomplish this weekend in the Relay car!”
