IndyCar Quotes (following Monday’s practice):

James Hinchcliffe (No. 5)

“Detroit and I have had a bittersweet relationship in the past, but the last few races there have been very competitive. I really like the new layout, and we are hoping to just continue the momentum we’ve been seeing with the No. 5 Arrow Electronics car, and try and get back on the podium.”

Mikhail Aleshin (No. 7)

“I’m very happy to be going back to Detroit, driving the No. 7 SMP Racing car. I have good memories from last time and hope to get good result for SPM team this time. It should be an exciting double-header weekend.”
