Disappointing Weekend For Foyt In Texas
AJ Foyt Racing endured a tough Saturday night at the Texas Motor Speedway for the DXC Technology 600 where Tony Kanaan in the No.14 ABC Supply Chevrolet who started the race from sixth place and retired from the race as a result of contact.
Speaking following the race, the Brazilian who was classified in 21st place commented by saying:
“I don’t know what happened. We definitely had a little issue with the rear of the car and it cost us the race. But it was a great weekend up until now, we qualified sixth. You know when you’re 12 laps down, it’s not worth it to put yourself out there. We’re not going to gain anything so we decided to stop. We’ll bounce back.
Matheus Matt Leist was forced to retire from the race following the race he said:
We were having a solid start, I think, and then I just lost power in Turn 1. I told the team, “No power. No power,” and then suddenly, I just saw flames coming up from the engine cover. We don’t know what happened. The only thing is that it is a pity for the team. I feel for the team not just for myself. I think we had a great car here and we could have done a great race here. It is what it is. It happens sometimes. Looking forward to the next one now
