Hinchcliffe: Finish Wasn’t Representative Of The Day At Road America

“Kind of story of our year: I don’t think the result was representative of the pace we had. We had a good start, got some guys, made up another spot or two during the first pit sequence… We were really just kind of running lap for lap with Josef [Newgarden] and Will [Power] there, maintaining the gap, looking after fuel and tires. On that last sequence, we decided to pit one lap early, and ultimately that let Colton [Herta] and Graham [Rahal] get ahead of us, which really just sort of compromised our race from there. When Colton’s tires went off, he made a mistake that ended up costing me two spots. Kind of bad luck, kind of wrong place wrong time, but the car was good and the Arrow guys were awesome in the pits. It’s a shame to leave here without the top five we deserved, but we’ll keep our heads down and keep pushing.”

TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
