8.13.13 (via LatinoSports.com) – In our ongoing series of learning about the life, thoughts and behind-the-scenes of auto racing, Andretti Autosport IndyCar driver E.J. Viso has consistently made time to answer our questions.
Along with asking him questions about the races, we’ve also been able to have a better understanding of the world of auto racing.
A driver since the age of five, Viso began his racing career at age five driving go-karts in his native Venezuela.
Piloting the No. 5 Team Venezuela PDVSA CITGO Chevrolet, the 28-year-old Viso enters his sixth IZOD IndyCar season and first with Andretti Autosport.
E.J.’s next race is at Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, CA on August 25. It will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network at 1pm PT/3pm ET. So if you have the time, please make the time to watch and support E.J.
So, what’s new?
I’m just getting through the season… trying to make our first win happen, trying to align all the little factors that are crucial to make it happen. So far the championship has been very, very competitive. I believe we’re very close to that first win.
How you feel your season is going?
The season has been pretty decent so far. The performance we’ve had has been great; there are still a few factors that are keeping us from a win, but we have no other choice but to keep fighting and doing what we know how to do, and we’ll keep doing that until the end of the season. I have a lot of faith in my crew and a lot of faith in the guys around me, and we’ll keep working.
Do you have a favorite racing movie?
I think Days of Thunder is always a fun movie to watch.
