IndyCar driver Ryan Hunter-Reay can still recall leaving Toronto a year ago hoping a third-place finish would kick start what had been a disappointing season.
Little did he realize how long that surge would last.
This week, Hunter-Reay heads north feeling much better about himself in preparing for the Honda Indy Toronto on Sunday. Back from the series' week off, he's riding a two-race winning streak that made him the first American-born IndyCar driver to win consecutive events since Sam Hornish Jr. in 2006.
It's a run that's thrust him into the thick of a tightly knit group of drivers contesting for the championship. And it's a run that dates a calendar year, a stretch in which he has finished third or better seven times in 17 races, including three wins.
