Ed Carpenter Racing’s Jordan King returns to the Verizon IndyCar Series this weekend in Detroit for the only double header of the season.

King returns to the No.20 Chevrolet which this weekend will have a primary sponsor from Allegiant International and speaking ahead of this weekend’s race, King commented by saying:

It’s going to be a very tough weekend physically and mentally as it’s a double header. This will be the first time I have raced a full race distance twice over the course of a weekend, so that is something new I need to prepare for and get my head around. Obviously, all of the circuits I am going to this year are new, but I have driven Detroit on the simulator so hopefully I can get up to speed quite quickly. There’s always been a bit of a steep learning curve going into a weekend, but overall, it’s been quite good. I am looking forward to another challenge!”

Spencer Pigot heads into this weekend’s event in Detroit having finished the Indianapolis 500 in 20th place and speaking ahead of the race he commented by saying:

Detroit was my first race with Ed Carpenter Racing back in 2016, so it’s almost an anniversary to go back there! I enjoy the challenges of Belle Isle and I’m excited to have the chance to race there again, especially as it’s Chevrolet’s home track. No doubt it’s going to be a tough weekend with two races coming off a busy month of May, but I know the Fuzzy’s Vodka crew is up for it. Our Indianapolis 500 did not finish quite as we were hoping for, so it’s good to be back in the car this weekend and get back after it!
