Helio Castroneves’ race engineer Jonathan Diuguid has told the Verizon IndyCar Series radio network that Team Penske are working extremely hard to return Helio Castroneves to victory lane.
The Brazilian is the only one of Penske’s four drivers yet to win a race this season but due to consistency he finds himself fighting for the championship in third place.
Castroneves has secured three Verizon P1 Awards so far this season and speaking ahead of this weekend’s race, he commented by saying:
Road America was a really great race for us, and the whole team is ready to head to Iowa. The No. 3 Hitachi Chevrolet team and I learned a few things at the other oval events that we think can apply to this track that we thing will bring us a really strong car. It’s one of those tracks that I’d like to get a win at and the competition is always good. Iowa fans are always a fun crowd so I’m ready to go back and see them.
