NTT IndyCar Series veteran Tony Kanaan who will start his 302nd consecutive race this weekend says he hopes that he and the No.14 ABC Supply Chevrolet crew can impress the boss, Super Tex AJ Foyt at the team’s home race at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin Texas for the inaugural IndyCar Classic.
The Brazilian who confirmed recently that he still has a few years left in the sport commented ahead of the race saying:
We’re excited about going to our first INDYCAR race in COTA. I got the chance to be one of the first drivers to do laps around the track last year for a tire test and was impressed with the layout and also the facilities, both in 2018 and also during the INDYCAR Spring Training in 2019. The track has some unique corners and also some cool elevation that makes you work hard in the car. We are keeping our heads down and working hard to get the No. 14 ABC Supply car up where it belongs in the grid and I’m confident that we’re making progress. No better place to get it going than at Texas to make the boss happy.
Matheus ‘Matt’ Leist in the No.4 ABC Supply Chevrolet is looking forward to the race this weekend saying:
I’m so excited to race at COTA for the first time. The place reminds me so much of the tracks I used to race in Europe. It is wide, long and has big straights. The high-speed section after Turn 1 has to be one of the most exciting high-speed sections of the calendar. I feel like the race is going to be a good show, and as the track is pretty wide I’d say the fans can expect lots of passes. It’s also a home race for our AJ Foyt Racing team and I’m more than enthusiastic to be around some close friends. The No. 4 ABC Supply Chevy crew will be working as hard as ever to bring a good result to our sponsor, fans and family. Looking forward to doing a great race weekend.”
