Ed Carpenter Racing’s Spencer Pigot and Ed Jones had a fantastic Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course on Saturday.
Spencer Pigot in the No.21 Autogeek Chevrolet finished the race in fifth place having started the race from 12th place and speaking following the day’s action he said:
It was a really tricky race that threw everything at us. I had a lot of fun as I was able to pass a lot of guys in the dry and I thought our pace was really strong. The rain was teasing us the whole race. The team made a great call to go on the wets (tires) when we did as we were able to jump a handful of cars. I’m happy with fifth and it was a good, strong finish for me. Ed Carpenter Racing has done a great job and I want to thank ECR, Autogeek and Chevy for all their hard work.”
Ed Jones in the No.20 Preferred Freezer Services Chevrolet finished the race in 6th place and speaking following the day’s action he said:
We didn’t know when to expect the rain, so we didn’t want to pit at the wrong time. It wasn’t too bad when the rain was lighter as the cars on track help to dry it. The yellow at the end made it interesting, but everyone was already on the same strategy. It was quite a good weekend as it was the first solid race we’ve had this year. It feels good to have this result going into the Indy 500. Now we get to focus on the oval. I’m excited to see the red and white car on track.”
