Vision Racing Fast Facts:

TAKING THE VISION TO CHICAGOLAND: Vision Racing heads to Chicagoland Speedway this weekend for the IndyCar Season finale. Driving on the 1.5-mile oval should suit team drivers Ed Carpenter and A.J. Foyt IV just fine as the pair have had some of their best starts and finishes on similar tracks this season. Last year, Foyt led the team effort at Chicagoland with a 10th place finish, and in 2006, Carpenter scored a fifth place finish at the track.

TOP-10 AT BELLE ISLE: In the most recent race at Belle Isle Park, drivers A.J. Foyt IV and Ed Carpenter took the 10th and 14th spots, respectively. It was Foyt's second consecutive top-10 at Belle Isle in just two starts there. Foyt started from 17th while Carpenter started from the 20th position.

A.J. Foyt IV - No. 2 Lilly Diabetes/Vision Racing Dallara/Honda/Firestone:

On race at Chicagoland... "I'd like to just go out and perform to our potential and capabilities this weekend. It just seems like for one reason or another, we haven't had the best of results this year so I just want to go out there and have a good race. Last weekend went well for us at Belle Isle and I think it is good coming to Chicagoland with a little of the momentum on our side. We just need to have a good weekend and make the best of this opportunity in the final points race of the season."

Ed Carpenter - No. 20 Menards/Vision Racing Dallara/Honda/Firestone:

On race at Chicagoland... "It's our last race of the season, it's an oval and it's a track that I've done well at before so of course my expectations are very high. We are capable of getting on the podium and even winning and we've yet to do it all season and I really want to make that happen this weekend. It just makes for a much better off-season if we can end on a positive note so that's what I intend to go out and do."
