A Disappointing Day For AJ Foyt Racing
AJ Foyt Racing endured a tough day at the office in qualifying for the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg, the opening race of the 2019 NTT IndyCar Series season.
Tony Kanaan in the No.14 ABC Supply Chevrolet will start the race from 21st place and speaking following the session he said:
I can’t call this qualifying. We got two red flags, so nobody ever put a fast lap in our group. The fastest lap was an out lap at a 1:03 and we were running .59s. It’s a shame, but it was out of our control. We didn’t cause the red flags, but we just didn’t get the lap.
Mathues ‘Matt’ Leist starts the race from 22nd place in the No.4 ABC Supply Chevrolet. Speaking following the day’s action the Brazilian said:
It’s not the result we wanted in qualifying We will be starting from the back tomorrow, so we have a lot of work to do. Even so, I’m looking forward to the race because it is a place that I like, and I usually drive pretty good. We’ll try to move to the front and have a good result tomorrow.”
