16th And 19th For Ed Carpenter Racing In Mid-Ohio Qualifying
Ed Carpenter Racing’s Spencer Pigot in the No.20 Fuzzy’s Ultra Premium Vodka Chevrolet will start Sunday’s Honda Indy 200 at the Mid-Ohio sports car course from 16th place having set a qualifying time of 01:04.6186s and speaking following the session the Orlando native commented by saying:
We knew going into qualifying that we were in a really had group. There’s so many good guys up and down pit lane. I feel like it was a pretty good lap on my part, we just ended up missing a little bit in the end. We closed the gap to the fastest cars yet again, but there were just a bunch of people super close as usual! We’ve been looking for a bit more front grip all weekend, we’ve been getting better and better but that’s one thing that if we can fix it, it will raise our speeds quite a bit. The Fuzzy’s Vodka car is really good though, especially on the longer runs, so we’re looking forward to racing tomorrow.
JR Hildebrand in the No.21 Fuzzy’s Ultra Premium Vodka Chevrolet endured a tough session as he will start the race from 19th place having set a fastest time of 01:05.3382s and speaking following the session he commented by saying:
The Fuzzy’s Vodka guys are doing a good job, the car doesn’t feel that bad. We just don’t seem to have a lot of speed in it. It’s frustrating because this is a track I really like and the team’s been good here in the past. We just can’t manage to get much better lap times out of it. It’s disappointing, but we’ll continue plugging away at it for the rest of the weekend.
