No. 28 DHL HONDA
STARTING POSITION: 5th
QUALIFYING SPEED: 230.648mph
Ryan Hunter-Reay’s third time qualifying inside the top nine positions [3rd ’12/’16, 7th ’13]
“First off, congratulations to Marco Andretti, the Andretti family, Andretti Autosport and the whole 98 team. We were a little shocked on our lack of speed but I think a few of us went a little skimpy on downforce today. We were sliding the car and when you’re sliding the car at Indy, it’s not fast. We just lost a little bit of speed. Congratulations to Honda. We just missed it for whatever reason. I was really surprised by first Hinch’s [Hinchcliffe] speed then Alex [Rossi] had a hard time out there. I thought I had a pretty good run but the rear was just a little too exposed sliding around a little bit. Disappointed for the 28 DHL boys but we will come strong next weekend.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
