Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda is excited about the IndyCar Grand Prix at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The Iceman heads into this weekend’s race in seventh place in the championship following his sixth place finish in Alabama last time out.
Speaking ahead of the race this weekend, Dixon said:
The (INDYCAR) Grand Prix is becoming a really cool tradition here in Indianapolis to start off the month of May. Any time you can add a race, especially when you don’t have to leave home, it’s a win, I think. The focus is definitely on the road course this weekend, but with the recent delayed testing on the oval we did last week, I think everyone is also thinking about the big one, as well, later this month on Memorial Day weekend. I don’t think we’ve had the start to the season we’d hoped for in the PNC Bank car, but it’s a great time to get a strong result and get things going the right direction this weekend.”
Ed Jones is looking forward to his return to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway saying:
I’m really looking forward to the INDYCAR Grand Prix. It’s going to be quite a bit warmer there this weekend than when we were last here. A few of the first races haven’t gone our way this season, but there is a lot of potential and I’m excited for us putting a whole race together. The whole team at Chip Ganassi Racing has done a great job so far this season with pit stops and strategy and everything. We are on the right track and hope to start getting the results soon.”
