Schmidt Peterson Motorsports head to the Honda Grand Prix of Alabama aiming to carry their momentum from the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach into the race at Barber Motorsports Park this weekend.
James Hinchcliffe in the No.5 Arrow Electronic Honda took victory last time out having started the race from fourth place and speaking ahead of the Honda Grand Prix of Alabama the Mayor Of HinchTown commented by saying:
I think the whole Arrow Electronics team is really looking forward to Barber this weekend. After two street courses, it’s going to be great to get back to a road course. The test there went pretty well for us; it’s always tough to know where everybody else is running. We’ve had good pace the first two races and we’re really hoping to carry that momentum, especially coming off the win at Long Beach, into this weekend and hopefully keep it rolling for the rest of the season.
Mikhail Aleshin is looking forward to returning to a traditional race track after starting the season with two street courses in St Petersburg and Long Beach and speaking ahead of the race, the Russian commented by saying:
“Barber is a very good example of great, classical racing. I like it a lot with all its elevation changes and very technical turns. It’s definitely a very difficult track but also interesting, and I think we are going to do well. I’m really excited to get back there.
