Following a seventh-place finish at the Detroit Chevrolet Grand Prix at Belle Isle, Hunter-Reay is seventh in the IZOD IndyCar Series point standings – only eight points behind third place after six races. In the season’s previous oval race, Hunter-Reay qualified third and started on the outside of the front row for the Indianapolis 500.
“We plan to carry over our speed from Indy to the high banks of Texas. We chose not to test at TMS because we were focusing on Indianapolis so we have a bit of an unknown, but I’m really confident we can roll off the truck with a good race car that can win this weekend.”
Did You Know: Hunter-Reay resides in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., but was born in Dallas in 1980. His ninth-place finish in the second Texas race last year started a hot streak for Hunter-Reay that has propelled him to 13 top-10 finishes in the last 17 races.
