IndyCar Quotes:
Conor Daly (No. 5)
“I’ve been looking forward to getting back in action ever since the checkered flag fell in Detroit. I think the work we were able to do there will definitely give us a good place to start from when we get on track. Thankfully we also have three practice sessions to continue learning and developing the car. New track, new challenge, but it was the same in Detroit so I hope to keep the Arrow Electronics car at the front.”

James Jakes (No. 7)
“I’m really excited to be returning to Toronto. It’s one of the best circuits and overall events on the calendar. The atmosphere is really cool. We’ve had great pace on the last couple of street circuits and I’m looking forward to converting that into a result. The No. 7 SPM MediaTech crew seems to be gelling nicely now and hopefully we can show that.”

Indy Lights Quotes:
Scott Anderson (No. 77)
“Toronto is definitely one of the more challenging tracks on the schedule but I really enjoy it. Since the Indy GP, I’ve been eager to get back to a road/street circuit. I was disappointed with our result at the Indy GP so I just want to get back at it to work on road and street circuits, since we haven’t had the results that I think we’re capable of.”

RC Enerson (No. 7)
“After a very exciting and eventful month of May, I think we will be very strong for Toronto. I’ve had a lot of success there and I’m really looking forward to a good result.”

Jack Harvey (No. 42)
“I’m really looking forward to Toronto. It’s a great circuit and a great city. Hopefully it will be another opportunity to get some wins and extend the championship lead.”

Ethan Ringel (No. 71)
“I’m very excited to get back onto another new street course this weekend in Toronto. I’ve been testing on my simulator a lot and memorizing it to be the most prepared that I can be. Hopefully what I’ve learned from the ovals will transfer to the road courses and I can repeat a P1 qualifying run. I’m already hungry for that feeling again!”
