Robert Wickens comments on the Desert Diamond West Valley Casino Phoenix Grand Prix.

This young Canadian far exceeded expectations for his very first IndyCar oval race.  When the checkered flag flew, the rest of the drivers knew that Wickens was at the race track Saturday evening!

“It’s a dream come true. All I wanted to do was finish every lap of my oval debut, so to come home P2 and even lead tonight, you can never expect that as a rookie. It’s so hard here but the Lucas Oil team did a great job. The car was great all day. James [Hinchcliffe] and I were quick, so I think it’s really encouraging for things to come.”

TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
