"I'm looking for it to become my favorite track," Castroneves said. "Hopefully I'll be able to finish in the top three and it will be one of my favorite tracks."
Castroneves comes into the Grand Prix of Baltimore with a 39-point lead over fast-charging Scott Dixon of New Zealand. Reigning IndyCar Series champion Ryan Hunter-Reay, who won in Baltimore last year, trails Castroneves by 62 points.
"We are not on a hunting position at this point. They are hunting us, and I'm not worried about that," Castroneves said. "I'm worried about continuing doing what we need to do to execute and bring the championship to Team Penske."
