No. 5 Arrow Electronics Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda
“This result is so great for the team. We really struggled on the reds [Firestone alternate tires], and the yellow [flag] just came at the right time but we had the pace at the end there. We were catching Alex (Rossi) and Josef (Newgarden) in that last stint. The car really came alive on the blacks so big thanks to Schmidt Peterson Motorsports, all the Arrow Electronics guys – great stops — and all the fans in Toronto. I mean the support that we feel each and every year is amazing. You guys are the best! You came even when the weather wasn’t looking awesome and hung out with us and we appreciate it. So thanks to all of you guys. Next year, maybe a couple of spots better.”
No. 7 Lucas Oil Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda
“I feel like that is a very successful weekend in the books. I’m very appreciative of the whole Schmidt Peterson Motorsports organization for taking me in and just making me feel like I’m home. I felt the same throughout the race and had a pretty solid car. We kept clean for the first stint, just tried to stay away from trouble, and when I started pushing, the car was there for me. Great strategy from the SPM guys and getting me out of those reds [Firestone alternate tires] and getting me some free time for me to do my thing. It played off perfectly with those yellows, and we managed to get in with the guys up front which changed the speed of the race for us. We had the car to do it. We’re proud of the pit stops, proud of the strategy and of course having a good car makes my life as a driver a lot easier.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
