Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda had a fantastic IndyCar Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course on Saturday. The Iceman started the race from 18th place and came through the field to finish the race in second place to claim his first podium of the season.
Speaking following the race, the Iceman commented by saying:
It was a great result today for the PNC Bank car and the whole team. Everyone on the Ganassi team never quits, never gives up and we were able to make up a lot of spots and finish second. I think that was the worst I’ve ever qualified without crashing or having a technical issue. Good day in the points for the No. 9 team. I love having this race open up the month for us here at Indy.
Ed Jones in the No.10 NTT DATA Honda endured a tough race. Starting the event from 15th place on the grid and was classified in 22nd place at the end of the race.
Speaking following the race he commented by saying:
Not the result we wanted, obviously, today with the NTT DATA car. I think we had good pace in the beginning and we got a good start and moved up several positions. Late in the race we must have just run over something and the tires went down. The car behind us had the same problem too.
