No. 26 DHL HONDA
STARTED 8 // FINISHED 7
CHAMPIONSHIP: 12 (175 pts.)
OF NOTE: Ryan Hunter-Reay made his 260th career start, recording a 131st career top-10 finish // Qualified eighth today after losing valuable run time in yesterday’s sole practice session due to a brake issue.
“We started eighth and finished seventh, so it may not look like much but we really hung in there all day. Coming out of practice yesterday, we didn’t get any actual runs due to a brake issue, so to qualify eighth today was alright for us and we really soldiered through the race. We went backwards on one strategy call and the next one, going fast in clean track, worked so it was a bit of a see-saw there. It was a really solid day in the pits by the 28 DHL guys. I’m proud of them as they put a lot of work. With our only real run time being today’s race, we’re taking away everything we can from today and hopefully Race 2 tomorrow is better.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
