“Our start didn’t go great, and obviously we were battling for position with Robbie [Wickens] there and got shuffled back behind Marco [Andretti]. That really was kind of the start of the end of a great result for us because we had pace, we just couldn’t get by him. We burned a lot of push-to-pass trying to get by him but just couldn’t do it… It’s unfortunate to waste so much time in the beginning of the race. On that restart melee, we got tagged by Takuma [Sato], which I should know better than staying on the inside of him in a corner like that. I bent the toe link, and from there, it was a bit of a struggle to feel the car out and see how it was going to change with the bend in the suspension. Honestly, the Arrow Electronics car was still pretty great, and in that last stint, we were chasing down the leaders. Who knows what could have been, but ultimately happy with Robbie being on the podium, and two SPM cars in the top five.”
