Last year, Detroit was my first race with Ed Carpenter Racing so it will be nice to get back to a track we’ve raced at together. I enjoy the challenges of Belle Isle and I’m excited to race there again. 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!
JR Hildebrand heads to the Dual in Detroit following a 16th place finish in the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil, having had Preferred Freezer Services as his primary sponsor last weekend, Hildebrand will revert back to primary sponsorship from Fuzzy’s Ultra Premium Vodka with his No.21 Chevrolet.
Speaking ahead of the races this weekend he commented by saying:
I am really looking forward to getting back to Detroit, I haven’t raced at Belle Isle since 2012 and never in the double header! I’ve always enjoyed the city and the whole vibe up there. It’s also the home race for Chevrolet so we’re looking to get a good result for them in both races in the Fuzzy’s Vodka Chevy.
