Verizon IndyCar Series rookie AJ Foyt Racing’s Matheus ‘Matt’ Leist, the driver of the No.4 ABC Supply Chevrolet says he excited to be taking part in his first month of May at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway starting with this weekend’s IndyCar Grand Prix of Indianapolis.
The Brazilian who completed his Indy 500 Rookie Orientation Programme at the speedway last week commented ahead of the race saying:
I’m excited for my first month of May in INDYCAR. It’s a pleasure to be here and I’m looking forward to the month. I’m happy with the performance of the car so far and I think we have great potential here at the Indy road course. We had a tough qualifying in Barber, but the race was pretty good, so I think we had a decent pace there. We’ll try to carry the momentum to Indy and have a great month here. Personally, the Indy road course is a track I really like, last year I got my first podium in Indy Lights here (finished third) so I’m looking forward to the race.
Tony Kanaan in the No.14 ABC Supply Chevrolet is excited to be back at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the month of May saying:
There is always a big anticipation for the Grand Prix because it is the race just before the (Indianapolis) 500. I love the road course and I’m excited to be back and expecting good things. You’re at the Speedway so it’s always a cool race. In the past, we used to stay here the whole month, but then they shortened the month of May, and now by adding the Grand Prix, the month of May came back in my opinion. I’m really excited to be back.
