Phoenix "looks promising" but there are many unknowns - Kanaan

  Phoenix Tony Kanaan is wary of declaring himself a potential winner this weekend at Phoenix, despite AJ Foyt Racing’s strong form at ISM Raceway in preseason testing. The Brazilian finished in the top five in three of the four test sessions around the 1.022-mile oval back in February, but the 43-year-old says that once he factors in the unknowns, he’s uncertain whether he can run at the front this weekend.“I don’t want to say something about the situation and then discover it’s totally different when we get there this time,” he told Motorsport.com.

2018 Toyota Sienna First Test: When a Highlander Just Isn’t Big Enough .
The Sienna shows its age, but still focuses on what matters mostStep inside, and you'll see that Toyota aces the most important test for any minivan: cabin space. There's a ton of space in all three rows, and considering I'm about 6 feet 4 inches tall, it's no small feat for any three-row vehicle to get a passing grade in the "sit behind myself behind myself" test. The backs of the second row seats are soft, which help make the third-row seats more comfortable when your knees touch the seat backs, and the side windows are of a decent size (which helps prevent third-row passengers from feeling too closed in).
