No. 27 NAPA AUTO PARTS / AUTONATION HONDA
STARTED 6 // FINISHED 3
CHAMPIONSHIP: 15 (190 pts.)
Alexander Rossi climbed three positions in the championship standings to 15th place // Led five laps during today’s race (Laps 22-26) before recording his second podium of the 2020 season.
“It’s good to see the NAPA team on the podium. We just haven’t had a lot of things go our way, we’ve had luck but we really haven’t had pace either so we’re really just trying to go out and make the most of each opportunity we have for the rest of this season. The 27 NAPA AUTO PARTS / AutoNation Honda guys did a great job, the car was good. I think had we been able to clear Ryan [Hunter-Reay] a bit sooner and then get Josef [Newgarden] we could have had a shot at it. I thought the car’s pace was really good but regardless [a win] wasn’t meant to be. Starting P6 was always going to be a little bit of a challenge but it was a good day for us and we get to do it all over again tomorrow.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
