RYAN HUNTER-REAY
No. 28 DHL HONDA


START–13th

FINISH–7th

CHAMPIONSHIP–16TH / 215 PTS.


OF NOTE: Boldly drove around the outside on the start to advance seven positions in the opening lap // Recorded third top-10 finish of the 2021 season.


“That’s a wrap at Gateway. I had a good race, a phenomenal start – that was a lot of fun, going around the outside from 14th to seventh. From there, I think we were on a really good strategy. We went fast, we were leap-frogging people in the pit cycle. It would have been really nice to see that pan out. Kind of par for the course, the yellow came out right when we needed it not to. There’s nothing you can do about that. The 28 team gave me a great shot today. We had some speed when we needed it. Things needed to roll our way with that strategy, unfortunately they didn’t, and we ended up seventh.”

The last oval of the 2021 NTT INDYCAR SERIES championship is complete with the conclusion of 260 laps of night racing at World Wide Technology Raceway. Victory wasn’t in the St. Louis stars for the Andretti Autosport team tonight, with Ryan Hunter-Reay being the sole team driver to take the checkered flag.

After a two-week break, the Series will head west for a three-in-a-row finale stretch starting with the Grand Prix of Portland on September 12 at 3 p.m. ET on NBC.

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