Cinema » Race Preview: Grand Prix of Houston
Still in the championship title fight in eighth position, James Hinchcliffe is armed with three wins and nine top-10 finishes as he enters the doubleheader weekend in Houston. The Toronto native will be sporting a special livery on his No. 27 Chevy to bring awareness to the National Breast Cancer Foundation as October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month.
“I think every driver loves the opportunity to try out a new track. I know for me, and a few others, it’s not 100% new. I got to drive it back in ’06 and ’07 in the feeder series, but obviously that was a long time ago. From what I remember, it was a very technical, very bumpy street course, so doing a double header there – in the Texas heat no less – will be a huge challenge for the cars, teams and drivers. But Houston was a really cool city and the fans seemed to love the event, so hopefully we can go there and put on a good show for them! We have had a few hard-earned top 10’s the last few races in the GoDaddy Chevy and we really want to end the season strong, so this is a great chance to grab good results and good points.”
