New Verizon IndyCar Series team Haring Racing endured a tough opening practice day as they began their official on track preparation for the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Monday.
Driving the No.88 Harding Racing Chevrolet, Colombian Gabby Chaves completed just six laps with a fastest speed of 207.672mph.
Speaking following the on track action, Chaves commented by saying:
Obviously we didn’t get as many laps as we would’ve liked on day one here in the Harding Racing 88 car. But our plan has always been to go through both of our cars and make sure we know they’re both working, and we did that. We would’ve liked to get some more laps but now we’re ready to roll first thing tomorrow.
