Panther, Hildebrand Keep Momentum Rolling North of the Border
After Exciting Fourth-Place Finish at the Iowa Corn 250, National Guard Rookie Looks Forward to Toronto
The IZOD IndyCar Series returns to Canada this weekend for the third Honda Indy Toronto race on the streets of downtown Toronto. Historically, the 1.75-mile, 11-turn street course has hosted some of the most exciting non-oval races in the series, and this year’s IZOD IndyCar Series field is one of the most talented and evenly matched in league history.
In the team’s two previous starts in Toronto, former driver Dan Wheldon finished 10th in 2010 and 14th in 2009.
Though this will be his first IndyCar race in Toronto, Hildebrand has raced the circuit in aFirestone Indy Lights car; finishing second in the Toronto 100 in 2009. Hildebrand, the Indy 500 runner-up and Rookie of the Year, is the top rookie in the IZOD IndyCar Series, leading Toronto hometown favorite James Hinchcliffe by a total of 27 points.
