Probably Our Best Day On Track So Far
AJ Foyt Racing’s Conor Daly in the No.4 ABC Supply Co Chevrolet ended Carb Day, the final day of practice ahead of Sunday’s 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 13th place having completed 30 laps with a fastest speed of 225.557MPH.
Speaking following the session, Daly commented by saying:
Probably our best day on track so far. The car was really good, really stable in traffic. Had a lap going that probably would have put us P1, but we just caught the cars too fast in front of us in Turn 4, so I’m really happy with the car going into the race for sure.
Carlos Munoz in the No.14 ABC Supply Co Chevrolet ended the day in 26th place with a fastest speed of 223.935MPH having completed 37 laps and speaking following the session he commented by saying:
I’m really happy with the car today, but it’s Indy, you know, so one day you feel really good and the next day may not be as good. Hopefully the car stays for us in the race. I’m really happy with my car. I think we made a lot of changes compared to Monday when I wasn’t happy with the car. The feeling of the car was great – my engineers Will (Phillips) and Daniele (Cucchiaron) worked really good. We made some good changes so hopefully we stay like this on Sunday. We just need a little bit more speed, but my sensation is good from Carb Day so we’ll see how we go for the race.
Zach Veach in the No.40 Indy Women in Tech Chevrolet ended the day in 30th place with a speed of 222.579MPH and speaking following the session he commented by saying:
Wow that was our last practice session before race day. These last couple weeks have gone by insanely fast. I think that was our best session yet – just focusing on our race car. We finally got everything pretty much covered from our incident last Friday. We just made a lot of progress and I think we have a really good starting point moving forward for the race. That will continue to change as we getting later into the race. We will continue making adjustments every stop. I think we have a great starting point and a great race car. We’ll just have to make a few minor tweaks from here on out.
