Alexander Rossi Had A Strong Day At Phoenix

Alexander Rossi

  • STARTED 4th // FINISHED 3rd
  • CHAMPIONSHIP: 2nd (72 pts.)
  • OF NOTE: After falling to the rear of the field and down a lap as the result of a drive-thru penalty, Alexander Rossi raced his way back to the led lap, making 53 passes to earn his second-consecutive podium finish.
“We had a strong start but then had a mishap on the first stop. It was unfortunate, but the important thing is that my crew is okay, that’s always my first concern. I didn’t challenge the box that hard, it was a stop under yellow so there wasn’t a need to – I went to turn right to line up and (the car) just went straight. Then we didn’t get the yellow we needed, so we had to completely un-lap ourselves and come back through the field. The Military To Motorsports Honda was by far the best car on track, I think, and it deserved to win. It wasn’t meant to be today, but I’m happy to stand on the podium.”

The next stop will be the Grand Prix of Long Beach.
