Ed Carpenter Racing with Scuderia Corsa’s Ed Jones in the No.20 Chevrolet started Sunday’s Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach from 17th and finished the event in 16th and speaking following the day’s action he said:

It was one of those situations today where we needed to try something a bit different to make things work. We needed a bit of luck on our side as well. Unfortunately, things didn’t play out that way. On the upside, we made progress with the car every session this weekend and ended in a better spot than where we started. That’s a positive. Going into the two races at Indianapolis, ECR has solid cars there, so we should have two solid races headed our way.”

Spencer Pigot in the No.21 Autogeek Chevrolet for Ed Carpenter Racing started the race from 23rd place and came home in 18th place and speaking following the day’s action he said:

“It was a very unfortunate start to the race. We got caught up in the mess that was going on in front of me and stalled the car after some contact. We went a lap down and from there, just had to try and claw our way back as much as we could. It’s frustrating because it seemed like we were actually going pretty quick and had a good race car. If we had been able to stay on the lead lap at the beginning, it would have been a lot better, but that’s not the way it went. We’ll come back stronger next time.”
