Ran throughout the top 15 the entire race after starting from the pole position – the seventh pole of his career and first at the Indy 500.
“We had high hopes coming into the race today after being fast all month. But we didn’t have it today. We didn’t have the pickup we needed on the restarts, that left us a sitting duck and we weren’t able to gain ground on pit stops to make up for anything. Everything combined left us 13th.”
After nearly three months delayed due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, Indianapolis Motor Speedway came alive Sunday with the roar of 33 engines. For the first time in the track’s 109-year history, no spectators were in attendance for the 104th Running of the Indianapolis 500 Presented by Gainbridge. Andretti Autosport fielded six entries for today’s 500-mile race, the most of any team in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES paddock.
For the first time, three generations of the Andretti family led the 33-car field to the green flag with Mario Andretti driving his son, Michael, in the Honda Fastest Seat in Sports followed by grandson and pole sitter, Marco. After a hard fought 200 laps, the Andretti Autosport stable took the checkered with five drivers inside the top 15 during a Honda-dominated Indy 500.
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
