Andretti Autosport’s Alexander Rossi in the No.27 NAPA Auto Parts Honda says he can’t wait to Portland aiming to build on his recent momentum which has seen the Californian close the gap to series leader Scott Dixon to just 26 points.

Looking ahead to the race he said:

 “I can’t wait to get to Portland this weekend. Going to a new venue is incredibly exciting and shows the growth of the Verizon IndyCar Series. We have two to go and we are looking for a win for the NAPA team.”

Zach Veach in the No.26 Group 1001 Honda is also looking to build on his recent strong form which includes a fifth place finish last time out in the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 at Gateway Motorsports Park.

We’ve really been coming into our own these past four events and I’m feeling more and more confident everyday. I’m excited to get to Portland and keep this streak of top 10s going and fighting to get on the podium before the season is over!”

Marco Andretti in the No.98 MilitaryToMotorsports Curb Honda is excited to race an IndyCar at Portland:

I’m excited to run an Indy car at Portland. I raced the track in Formula Renault and collected some wins. Hopefully we can follow the same path this weekend and bring home the team a win.”

Ryan Hunter Reay in the No.28 DHL Honda heads into this weekend’s race aiming to bounce back from his retirement at the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 and speaking ahead of the Portland Grand Prix he said:

I’m looking forward to racing back at Portland again. I think there are only a handful of us who have raced the track before but I’m excited that it’s back on the schedule. We’ve had a bit of bad luck the past couple races, but hopefully we can turn that around this weekend and bring home a solid finish for the DHL team.”
