Chip Ganassi Racing’s Ed Jones in the No.10 NTT DATA Honda had a great day in race 2 at Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix. The Dubai native started the race in fourth place just ahead of his team mate Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda.
Jones who finished the race in third place, collecting his second podium finish of the season, commented by saying:
“It was a fantastic day for the NTT DATA team. The guys really did a good job with the car this weekend. We started off a bit slow, but the important thing is that we improved every session and earned our way here today. Today’s podium was another step in the right direction for the No. 10 NTT DATA team and I’m looking forward to getting back after it at Texas in a few short days.
Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda followed up his victory on Saturday with a fourth place finish on Sunday and in doing so the Iceman has moved into second in the champion standings closing to within five points of leader Will Power.
Speaking about Sunday’s race, Dixon said:
That was a job well done there by the whole PNC Bank team. I’m just not sure what happened to the red (Firestone alternate) tires there as they just really fell off and went away on us. We didn’t really change anything on the car from yesterday other than a few little things to stabilize the rear end. It was a good day overall for us and we got some good points.
