Honda Indy Toronto
Verizon IndyCar Series
No. 28 DHL Honda

“Toronto is such a great track and in a great city. It’s one of my favorite cities to visit and Racing for Cancer is having The Rally there this year, co-hosted with James Hinchcliffe. It’s going to be a fun weekend and hopefully we can go for win number two for the DHL team in Toronto. Going from a short oval to a road course, you just really climb in and go for it. Toronto is a really challenging circuit with a very small margin for error so we’ll have to work hard.”

“I feel pretty positive going into Toronto. It is a race you want to remember for a long time. So, I’m happy to get back at the track and in the car in a couple days. Toronto is always an exciting race – very challenging, it is one of the bumpiest tracks on the schedule. I have a lot of good memories there and hopefully we can come bounce back strong and score some good points.”

“Toronto is one of the best races on the calendar. I really love the track, and having driven those streets in a road car – it’s really awesome to be driving them in an Indy Lights car at three or four times the speeds. We have the hometown crowd and lots of friends and family, and the Canadian race fans are awesome. I’m really looking forward to being back home in Canada and we’ll be working hard for a good hometown result.”
