MAVTV 500 Race Preview

MAVTV500_2Ranked sixth in the points standings, Ryan Hunter-Reay will return to Auto Club Speedway this weekend where he clinched the 2012 IndyCar title — his first career championship — one year ago. With 150 career starts under his belt, Hunter-Reay has led for a total of 844 laps during his career – 252 so far this season resulting in two victories and eight top-10 finishes.

“As a team we have some great memories of what we accomplished at this race track. This time last year we fought through adversity all weekend long to claim the overall championship by just a few points… what a comeback. We learned a heck of a lot about what we need to do different with our setup at this track, and following a successful test just a couple weeks ago, we’re optimistic headed into the final race. For one reason or another, things just haven’t gone our way this year despite recording three poles and two wins. We may not have the championship on the line Saturday night, but we’re really hungry for that third win this season. I think we’re ready.”
