Tony Kanaan Ponders About Mid-Ohio And Struggles

Tony Kanaan is in his 17th season racing in the Verizon IndyCar Series. At no point has he endured the winless drought he has now. In fact, Kanaan faces a nearly four-year drought without a win.

The last time the driver of the No. 14 ABC Supply Company Chevy for AJ Foyt Racing drove into Victory Lane was in 2014. The finale of the 2014 season, Kanaan would take the checked flag.  Since then, it’s been a struggle.

Kanaan currently sits 15th in points, winless in 16 starts at the 13-turn Mid-Ohio Road Course where the series stops for today’s Honda Indy 200. I sat down with Tony after a full day of practice, qualifying, and debriefs with the team engineers. Kanaan knows the struggles, and believes the team can get turned around soon. However, it’s a fight for the Brazilian racer and his team.

We have a little fun with Tony at the end, as he shows that he’s a pretty smart guy.

Here is the full interview with Tony Kanaan.

If it races, I'll write about it, talk about it or shoot it with a camera.

I began pursuing a career in motorsports journalism immediately after attending college at Kent State University. I have hosted multiple Motorsports talk shows, worked in Country Music radio, and now i spend every day on the air in the morning with 1300 and 100.9 WMVO and in the afternoons watching the roadways around Central Ohio for 93.7 WQIO.

The excitement and the fans make everything I put out there worth while, it's been an exciting 15 years having covered everything from the Daytona 500 to the Rolex 24 and you can find me at pretty much any event run at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

What I like to bring is a look behind the scenes, a look at what and who makes the sport grow. From the guy that welds pieces back at the shop to the host in the tv booth.

Everyone has a story and I like to tell it. My main focus here at TPF is looking at the men and women behind the microphone and cameras.

My life long goal is to become a member of MRN or PRN Radio and bring the races to you. I hope that what I share now is enjoyable and gives you a unique look in to the world of motorsports.

See you at a track soon
