Race Preview: Detroit Grand Prix

Verizon IndyCar Series

No. 27 Ruoff Home Mortgage Honda


“The Verizon IndyCar Series certainly keeps us on our toes. From eight days on-track in Indianapolis to the streets of Detroit just five days later, we certainly need a different mindset. I have come to really enjoy driving around Belle Isle and it's an equally important weekend as the Indy 500 in terms of points so we will be looking to capitalize. We’ll have Ruoff Home Mortgage on board this weekend, so hopefully we can get them another win, or two.”

No. 28 DHL Honda

"We’re heading to Detroit fifth in points, so we’re looking to keep the momentum rolling. There are as many points up for grabs in Detroit as in Indy – it’s a great opportunity for us to continue to build and move forward in the standings. We finished on the podium in Belle Isle a couple times, and we’re really looking to get the DHL team onto the top step.”

No. 98 AutoNation / Curb Honda

"Now that Indy is done, it’s time to switch our focus and get the race win we know we have in the No. 98 machine and we have two good chances to put the AutoNation car up front in Detroit. It will be a physical race after the IMS oval, but we are prepared in every way possible. I love driving the Belle Isle circuit.”

“Detroit is the first race on the calendar that I’ve never had the opportunity to compete at. I’m really excited to get out on track and learn the course as it’s always put on a great show. It’ll be my first IndyCar double-header as well. We know it’s going to be a tough weekend but my Relay crew and I are ready for the challenge!”
