Schmidt Peterson Motorsports James Hinchcliffe in the No.5 Arrow Electornics Honda goes into this weekend’s Iowa Corn 300 at Iowa Speedway off the back of a tenth place finish last time out in the Kohler Grand Prix at the Road America circuit.
The Mayor of HinchTown is looking forward to the race this weekend saying:
Iowa is one of the funnest little races of the whole year. That track is so exciting; short-track racing in INDYCAR is always awesome. Our test there last week was pretty productive. It’s crazy going to some of these new tracks with the lower downforce and try to wrap your head around it. We learned a lot, and I’m looking forward to getting back there in the Arrow Electronics car for the race as it’s usually a really fun event.
Robert Wickens who drives the No.6 Lucas Oil Honda goes into the race this weekend off the back of a strong race at the Kohler Grand Prix where he finished the race in fifth place and looking ahead to this weekend’s race he commented by saying:
I think Iowa is going to be a pretty crazy race. I’m still trying to get used to these ovals, especially with Iowa being a high-banked short track. I’m really looking forward to learning something new. The goal for the weekend, like it has been on any oval, is to try to make it to the end and hopefully we can be in the top 10 in the final stint. It’s going to be a lot of hard work, and I think qualifying is going to be very important. I’m pretty confident that everyone on the No. 6 Lucas Oil car will do a good job to get us up front
