Veach Captures A 12th In The IndyCar Grand Prix

Zach Veach
With a weekend to put behind us, the team switches focus to the 103rd Running of the Indianapolis 500. Opening Day (May 14) for the 2019 edition of the 500-Mile Race will welcome practice from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET and the schedule will repeat itself through Fast Friday (May 17).

No. 26 GAINBRIDGE HONDA
  • STARTED 20th // FINISHED 12th
  • CHAMPIONSHIP: 19th (73 pts.)
“It was a bit of a hard-earned 12th, to be honest. The whole team suffered in qualifying so starting 20th didn’t help us. We got hit on the start and fell back to 24th and from that point on it was just trying to get every car in front of us that we could. We took a gamble once the rain started to come and I chose to go out with Reds instead of wets, and that was a mistake. If we would have asked for the [Firestone Rain Tires) – everyone that did come in for wets at that point ended up in the top five. I feel like that was a missed opportunity, but I think we were one of the fastest cars in the wet conditions. So that is a positive to take from today and it’s nice to have some sort of good momentum to head into the Indy 500.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
