Ed Carpenter Racing’s Conor Daly in the No.20 U.S Air Force Chevrolet came home in 15th place having started the race from eighth place and speaking following the action he commented saying:
Today was a positive overall, even though the result doesn’t show it. We had a great qualifying pace and our pace in the race was fantastic as well. We just got bogged down in traffic and struggled to make our way through. It really doesn’t seem like too many people were able to pass, including us. That kind of ruined our strategy and ended up not getting the result we deserve as a team. I don’t think we can leave this weekend and say we were slow, we were definitely competitive lap-time wise. We’ll take it and move on to Road America.
Rinus Veekay in the No.21 Sonax Chevrolet started the race from third place on the grid however, it was a disappointing event for the Dutch driver as he came home in 18th place and speaking following the race he commented saying:
“We had a good qualifying result, starting third. We made a strategy call that could have worked out very well, but unfortunately didn’t go our way. Our race just went downhill! I got a puncture that put us even worse on strategy, it was just a hard day. Let this be our bad result of the season! We’ll get back to going to Top 10s, podiums and wins. I am very excited to go to Road America, it is my favorite track and I want to get a nice result!
