Ed Carpenter Racing’s Rinus VeeKay in the No.21 BitNile Chevrolet came from 17th place on the grid at the GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the IMS road course to finish the race in 13th place on Saturday afternoon.

Speaking following the action, VeeKay commented saying:

It was a pretty good race, but quite tough. We were just short on pace, but in every on-track battle I found myself in I was able to get the better spot. I did everything I could today and we were able to move up to 13th from 17th. Brought the No. 21 BITNILE.COM Chevrolet home clean, picked up some points and now am looking forward to the Indianapolis 500.”

Conor Daly in the No.20 BitNile CHevrolet started the race from 21st place and came come in 19th place and speaking following the raction, the Noblesville IN, native said that it was an odd race.

“Today seemed a bit odd. We made a lot of progress at the start and seemed like we were moving forward. I am not sure how the strategies ended up playing out so we didn’t end up moving forward as much as we wanted. We lost a lot of tire grip at the end, but we tried to make the best out of the situation and pass a lot of cars. It just didn’t seem to fall our way. I can’t wait to get to the oval and keep that good momentum that I have had here before going.”

Next up for the NTT INDYCAR SERIES is the opening day of practice for the Indianapolis 500 which takes place on Tuesday where Ed Carpenter, team owner of ECR will be on track.
