Herta Disappointed With His Qualifying
Harding Steinbrenner Racing’s Colton Herta in the No.88 King Taco Honda was left disappointed following his qualifying run for the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach on Sunday.
The Valencia, California native will start the race from 10th place having set a fastest time of 01:07.7721s and speaking following the day’s action he said:
From my standpoint, it was a very disappointing day because we never got a fair crack at the Firestone Fast Six. Unfortunately, we left a little late and a red flag came out, so we never got our time in and never got the benefit of the red (Firestone alternate) tire. Although we’re starting 10th, I know we could have made it through to the Firestone Fast Six because I was on my fast lap when the red flag came out. We never got the chance to show our speed. But hopefully, we can charge towards the front in our No. 88 King Taco Honda-powered car tomorrow for the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach.”
