No. 6 Lucas Oil Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda
“We did have a great car in the race. I don’t think anyone had anything for Scott [Dixon] today. Dixie was kind of in a class of his own, but to go punch for punch with him in the second stint…I thought we really showed some great strides, some great improvements on the Lucas Oil car from warmup to now. The final stint, I don’t if it was damage from the fight with [Simon] Pagenaud, but I had too much understeer and I couldn’t maintain that pace. If not, I think it would have been a fun fight between Simon and I at the end. I thought maybe second [place finish] was in the cards for me, but it just wasn’t meant to be. Thankfully I’m not an overly teary guy, but that (finishing on the podium in Canada) was really cool. I can’t thank these Toronto fans enough. I mean this whole week has been such a whirlwind of emotions, and to stand on the podium in my first professional home race, I couldn’t ask for anything better.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
