Hunter-Reay Hopes Nashville Marks Turning Point for Andretti

The inaugural Big Machine Music City Grand Prix roars to life Friday in Nashville with the first NTT INDYCAR SERIES practice set for 4:10 p.m. (ET), and 2012 series champion Ryan Hunter-Reay is ready for the challenge this new street circuit will present. The past couple of seasons haven’t gone as Hunter-Reay and Andretti Autosport would have liked, with Colton Herta the only driver in the organization to have won an INDYCAR race. “It’s a clean sheet of paper,” Hunter-Reay said of this 11-turn, 2.17-mile temporary street circuit. “I think it’s a pressure that comes with a home race,” he said. Seventeen of the 27 drivers in this weekend’s event have won at least one INDYCAR race, so Hunter-Reay knows the competition will be fierce. I put the most pressure on myself, and within our 28 team we are there to win races.
