Hunter-Reay will be making only his second visit to WGI for this year’s Camping World Grand Prix at The Glen, June 3-5, but his first visit landed him in Gatorade Victory Lane. His win at the legendary road course was the first of his IndyCar Series career and was a springboard to late season success that included five Top-10 finishes in the final seven races. He ended up in 8th the final season standings in his first full season of IndyCar Series competition. Hunter-Reay began the 2009 season with Vision racing but moved to A.J. Foyt Enterprises prior to the race at Iowa Speedway. He will remain with the team for the rest of the season which includes the Camping World Grand Prix at The Glen. This is an interesting twist as Hunter-Reay passed Darren Manning, who was driving for A.J. Foyt at the time, for the lead with 9 laps go on his way to victory at The Glen last year.
