Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports James Hinchcliffe in the No.5 Arrow Electronics Honda will start tonight’s 300 lap race at Iowa Speedway from 5th place and goes into the event as the defending Iowa race winner.

Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports have made great strides this season having made big changes within the team over the off season of 2018 and they have transferred this progress into the 2019 season with the on track performances for both Hinch and his team mate Marcus Ericsson and although Hinch has yet to step on the podium this season he is well placed to do just that from fifth place on the grid today.

Speaking following the qualifying session on Friday the Canadian commented by saying:

A good run for No. 5 Arrow car. These track conditions are so tough right now with the temperatures the way they are, the wind the way it is. I have to thank (teammate) Marcus (Ericsson) for giving me good advice from his run. We’re starting better than we did last year and we won from 11th last year. The race car was really good in practice, so thanks to the Arrow SPM boys for giving us a strong car. We’ll see where we can go from here.
