Harding Steinbrenner Racing team president Brian Barnhart says he is looking forward to seeing how Colton Herta in the No.88 Capstone Honda fairs in the ABC Supply 500 at Pocono Raceway this weekend.
Speaking ahead of the race Barnhart said:
Pocono Raceway is certainly one of the more interesting tracks on the NTT IndyCar Series schedule. “It has always been a place with compromise involved because of the uniqueness of the oval configuration. Drivers will determine if they want to get through the first turn well and compromise on the third turn or, the other way around, get through the third turn strong before the wide and long straightaway while doing their best to get through the second turn. This track is unique and challenging, so I’m looking forward to seeing how Colton and the #88 Capstone Turbine Honda will do during this two-day show.”
Colton Herta is looking forward to the Tricky Triangle, his first time competing at the track. Speaking about the race the NTT IndyCar Series rookie said:
“I’m really looking forward to racing at Pocono Raceway this weekend. “We were so fast throughout the month of May on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway 2.5-mile oval, so I know the #88 Capstone Turbine Honda can be quick and competitive around the 2.5-mile Tricky Triangle. I’m really excited for the next three races in a row, especially having the opportunity to race at Pocono Raceway since I have never competed here.”
