Andretti Harding Steinbrenner Autosport’s James Hinchcliffe in the No.29 Genesys Honda says that his race car feels good in race trim as he prepares for the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on Sunday.
The Mayor of HinchTown who starts the race from 16th on the grid told Paddock Eye during media day that the car feels probably the best it has been this season and that they performed really will while in traffic during practice following qualifying last Sunday.
Hinchcliffe went on to say that it will be a case of doing everything right in the pit-stops and with race strategy to get upfront. It is a long race so the team will see where they end up but in terms of green-flag stops the teammates will work together on pit-road to ensure that they don’t trip up over one another where one car stops one lap after the other.
Hinch went on to say that the Indianapolis 500 is almost like pushing the reset button for the season as there is break of a week following the 500 on Sunday and he hopes that a good result on Sunday gives the team a foundation to build on heading to the double header in Detroit.
