“Pretty tough day. I think that our Lucas Oil car was really quick. We had a pretty good start, capitalized on other people’s mistakes, and I think we were in podium contention until we had a mechanical issue. I’m not entirely sure, but I’m hearing the GCU unit failed. I got stuck in fifth gear, we couldn’t fix it and obviously trying to fix it under green flag was a nightmare because you just lose so many laps. It’s a shame. The car was really quick on both tires.The car was actually pretty phenomenal on blacks [primary Firestone tires]. It’s just unfortunate – two street courses in a row where we should have scored really great points and we leave with basically nothing.”

TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY RENDECK!
