Harding Racing’s Gabby Chaves in the No.88 Harding Group Chevrolet had another strong showing in their second Indianapolis 500 on Sunday.
The Colombian who started the race from 22nd on the grid came home in 14th place giving the Main Street, Speedway based outfit a solid foundation to build on for the rest of the season starting with this weekend’s Chevrolet Belle Isle Grand Prix double header presented by Lear.
Speaking following the race Chaves said:
“It was a race of perseverance for us. First 150 laps were really tough because the car was a bit all over the place. At the end we had a nice change that completely turned the car around and, all of a sudden, I was passing cars and driving as hard as I could. That put us in a really good position to where if we hadn’t been unlucky in the last restart with the lapped cars that went through pit lane on the last few laps, we would have had a top ten finish”
