This will be the third and final time this season that IndyCar runs two full- distance races at a venue on the same weekend. The Raceway at Belle Isle Park in Detroit hosted the first weekend doubleheader of the year on May 31-June 1. The second weekend doubleheader this season took place at Houston's NRG Park on June 28-29.
This will be the sixth straight year that Toronto hosts an IndyCar-sanctioned race. Prior to IndyCar's inaugural event in 2009, CART/Champ Car competed on the streets of Toronto from 1986-2007.
The IndyCar champion has won in Toronto in four of the last five years. Dario Franchitti, Ryan Hunter-Reay and Scott Dixon all won on the streets of Toronto before eventually claiming the title. Franchitti accomplished the feat in 2009 and again in 2011. Hunter-Reay did it in 2012. Dixon scored a weekend-sweep in Toronto and then captured the series championship last year.
Chip Ganassi Racing has won six times at Toronto: Michael Andretti (1994), Alex Zanardi (1998), Franchitti (2009 and 2011) and Dixon (2013, both races).
Team Penske has two wins at this circuit: Paul Tracy (1993) and Will Power (2010). Team Penske has six pole positions there as well: Danny Sullivan (1988 and 1990), Emerson Fittipaldi (1993), Helio Castroneves (2000), Gil de Ferran (2001) and Will Power (2011).
Andretti Autosport is the only other active team to win at Toronto with Ryan Hunter-Reay in 2012. Team owner Michael Andretti won in Toronto seven times as a driver (CART races - 1989, 1991, 1992, 1994, 1995, 2000 and 2001).
The Honda Indy Toronto will be the ninth and 10th races on a road/street course in 2014. The first eight races were won by Will Power (St. Petersburg), Mike Conway (Long Beach), Ryan Hunter-Reay (Barber), Simon Pagenaud (Grand Prix of Indianapolis and Houston-2), Will Power (Belle Isle-1), Helio Castroneves (Belle Isle-2) and Carlos Huertas (Houston-1).
