Schmidt Peterson Motorsports James Hinchcliffe in the No.5 Arrow Electronics Honda endured a disappointing Honda Indy 200 at the Mid-Ohio sports car course on Sunday.
The Mayor of HinchTown started the race from 10th place and fell back during the event finishing the 90 lap race in 14th place and speaking following the event he commented by saying:
“It was a pretty disappointing day for us. We had to roll the dice on strategy a little bit given where we were starting. Unfortunately it just didn’t play out for us. We had a rough day in pit lane which didn’t help; it lost us some track position that cost us a ton of time behind [Zach] Veach in the second stint. From then on, we were just doing damage control. It’s unfortunate. We had to take a bit of a risk starting 10th, and today just didn’t play out. The Arrow Electronics crew will regroup, pull a tear-off on this one and go for it in Pocono.”
While Hinch had a disappointing race his team mate Robert Wickens finished the race in second place behind race winner Alexander Rossi.
