Andretti Autosport’s Carlos Munoz is looking forward to returning to Pocono Raceway for the ABC Supply 500 this weekend.
The Colombian has two previous starts at Pocono Raceway in the Verizon IndyCar Series finishing on the podium in 2014 with a third place finish while last season he finished the race in fifth place.
Munoz is currently the highest placed Andretti Autosport driver in the Verizon IndyCar Series points standing, he is in eighth place on 328 points. Speaking about Pocono he commented by saying:
“It’s kind of weird because there are three different corners, all of them totally different, so the car behaves differently.” “I don’t know. Since Indy Lights, I’ve been really quick there. From the first time, I’ve been really quick. It’s hard to explain why. I’ve always had great cars every time, which always helps.
Munoz has secured two podium finishes so far this season with his first coming at the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil where he finished the race in second behind team mate Alexander Rossi.
Munoz also secured a podium finish last time at Mid-Ohio where he finished the race in third place behind race winner Simon Pagenaud and Will Power.
Munoz feels that he has had a great season and is just one point behind Schmidt Peterson Motorsports James Hinchcliffe with four races remaining this season. While Munoz has had a great season his team mate Marco Andretti has had his toughest season since beginning his Verizon IndyCar Series career. Munoz commented by saying:
I personally feel like I’m getting better in everything,” he said. “Experience makes a lot of difference. I’ve been to a lot of tracks, driving-wise, so technically I’ve been able to have the car the way I like it more. Everything has been much better for me this year.
