Ed Carpenter Racing’s Spencer Pigot who drives the No.21 Autogeek Chevrolet was really happy with how his qualifying for today’s Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park.
The Florida native will start today’s race from sixth place having made it into the Firestone Fast Six.
Pigot set a fastest lap of 01:09.6074s and speaking following the day’s action he said:
I am really happy with the Autogeek Chevrolet. We were really competitive there in the first two rounds, we were P1 and P2. In the Firestone Fast Six, we got the order wrong – we probably should have run our sticker blacks (Firestone primary tires) then our scuffed reds (Firestone alternate tires), but that’s alright. It’s a bit of data we can save for the future. We’re really happy to qualify up front, but also a little bit dejected to have not had more there at the end. Overall, we are coming away with a lot of positives. We are definitely looking good for tomorrow.”
Ed Jones in the No.20 Chevrolet for Ed Carpenter Racing with Scuderia Corsa starts the race from 21st place following a time of 01:09.0441s and speaking following the session he said:
Session to session, we have really struggled with getting anything to be consistent with the car. Qualifying was frustrating; around here it’s very difficult to pass, so it would have been much better to start further up. However, things can change for tomorrow’s race with strategy and maybe even the weather. We’ve got to do the best we can and make the best of every opportunity. We’ll push on from here.”
