Toronto Indy Race Preview!


James Hinchcliffe, No. 27 GoDaddy Chevrolet

Racing just 37 km from his hometown of Oakville, Ontario, James Hinchcliffe will make his third and fourth Toronto Indy starts on the 11-turn temporary street course this weekend. The hometown favorite remains the only three-time winner so far this season and is currently fifth in the championship points standings.

“I’m thrilled to come back to Toronto. It’s one of my favorite weekends of the year – it has been since I was a kid. To get to come back here and race in front of your home crowd – at the race that essentially is the very reason I became a fan of racing, nevermind a driver – it’s something really special. Last weekend (in Pocono) obviously didn’t go very well for us, but we’ve had strong cars on the street courses this season, and even though this isn’t the place I’ve had the best luck, we’re going to try to turn it around; the GoDaddy crew has been doing a great job. The support back home has just been incredible this year. More than anything, I want to give the Canadian fans something good to cheer for and something to celebrate because they are the best, and they’ve been so good to me over the last few years and I want to repay them. Hope for a good finish, get the championship back on track and hopefully we can just go out and have two clean races.”
