Defending NTT IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda says that the championship is tight with just three races remaining.
The Iceman has scored four podiums in the last four races including his win at Honda Indy 200 a Mid Ohio sportscar course.
Speaking ahead of the race this weekend:
Just three to go now, right? I’ve been pretty happy with the past several races. The whole PNC Bank team has done a great job finishing either first or second. It’s what you have to do. But we still need more wins. This is the go time part of the NTT IndyCar Series season. This championship is just so tight – you cannot afford to make any mistakes from here on out, or you’ll be on the outside looking in – really fast. We’ve been on the podium here the past two years but haven’t been able to get that top step on the podium. This Saturday would be the perfect time to break through. The track and everyone here does such a great job promoting this event, and it really shows. It’s a great place to race and we’ll see how it goes this weekend.”
Felix Rosenqvist in the No.10 Monster Energy Honda is looking forward to the race this weekend saying:
I’m pleased to have been given the go-ahead to race at (World Wide Technology Raceway) this weekend. Yes, I am a bit sore and it was definitely a significant impact, but all in all, I feel perfectly fit and ready to return to racing. I have been very well taken care of these last few days and I’ve also been stunned by the outpouring of support from my fans around the world. I really, really appreciate it and I hope I can put on a good show for everyone this weekend. I took part in a rookie test at Gateway a few weeks ago, and I think that’s the best feeling I’ve had so far on an oval. I don’t expect the crash last weekend to affect that at all. There was nothing I could do to avoid it, so there is no reason to change anything in terms of my approach to this weekend. I will be giving it everything I’ve got and I actually think it’s a positive thing getting back in the saddle again so soon. This is our final oval of the season and I’m committed to trying to make it our best one.”
