Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports drivers James Hinchcliffe and Marcus Ericsson head into this weekned’s DXC Technology 600 at Texas Motor Speedway hoping to build on their strong momentum from Detroit.
Marcus Ericsson in the No.7 Arrow Electronics Honda scored his first NTT IndyCar Series podium in race 2 in Detroit on Sunday and speaking about Texas he said:
“A new race, just a few days after Detroit, obviously bringing a lot of good feelings and confidence from that second-place finish in Race 2. It was a great race and a great breakthrough for us – the first podium of the year for Arrow SPM. Texas will be my second oval race. I have a lot of good experiences from last month in Indy, and even though the result was disappointing then, there were a lot of positives to bring from that. We’re going to build on that now for Texas and aim to have a strong weekend and a good result.”
James Hinchcliffe in the No.5 Arrow Electronics Honda is hoping to bounce back from a disappointing result in Detroit race two this weekend in Texas.
The Mayor Of HinchTown finished on the podium here in 2016 in what was the closest NTT IndyCar Series finish at Texas Motor Speedway when he finished second behind Graham Rahal.
Speaking ahead of the race this weekend he said:
I think everyone at Arrow SPM is excited to get to Texas. It’s a track we’ve been strong at the in past, and coming off a strong race, even if not a strong result at Detroit, we want to keep the momentum up and cap off a busy stretch with a strong result.”
