We Made Some Positive Strides On The Weekend As A Whole
Harding Racing team president Brian Barnhart was happy with how the team performed over the course of the IndyCar Grand Prix on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.
Speaking following the race, Barnhart commented by saying:
We made some positive strides on the weekend as a whole.” But we didn’t execute the pit stops in the manner and fashion that we needed to. So unfortunately, every bit of progress made during the race we gave it up every time we get into pit road and that’s just something you can’t afford to do in the Verizon IndyCar series. We’re going to make sure we’re going to focus and execute our pit stops better as we prepare for the Indianapolis 500.
Gabby Chaves in the No.88 Harding Group Chevrolet started the race from 22nd place and finished the 84 lap event in 17th place.
Speaking following the race, the Colombian commented by saying:
That was a long race with a lot of green time,” said Gabby Chaves. “I was pretty happy with the changes we made, especially on the red tires. We really struggled for pace on the black tires, so that’s something we’ll have to look at the data and figure out how we improve that aspect of our race. I thought that if it wasn’t for a few mishaps in the pits we’d probably be inside the top-ten. Now we make a few improvements and I’m really looking forward to the best part of this month.
