AJ Foyt Racing’s Tony Kanaan in the No.14 ABC Supply Chevrolet heads into the Grand Prix of Portland this weekend aiming to build on his podium finish last time out at the World Wide Technology Raceway.
Speaking ahead of the race Kanaan said:
Coming from a great weekend in St. Louis, I’m looking forward to going to Portland which is a race I’ve always enjoyed. I’ve raced many years there. It’s a fun race track. We were almost in the top 10 there last year so it’s another race where I hope I can put the ABC Supply car in the top 10.”
This weekend the Brazilian will start his 316th consecutive NTT IndyCar Series race which takes back ironically to Portland in June 2001.
Mathues Matt Leist in the No.4 ABC Supply Chevrolet is looking forward to this weekend’s event in Portland saying:
“I can’t wait to get back to Portland. Since my first lap there last year, I fell in love with the track. I feel like we had a pretty good car there last year, we ran in the top 12 most of the race, but due to a yellow, we ended up falling down a couple of places. Anyway, I’m looking forward to working with my team, setting up a good car and getting the No. 4 ABC Supply Chevrolet a great finish on Sunday. That’s what it’s all about.”
