AJ Foyt Racing’s Carlos Munoz in the No.14 ABC Supply Co Chevrolet started Sunday’s Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach from 14th place and came through the field during the 85 lap race and finished the event in 7th place.
Speaking following the race, a relieved Munoz commented by saying:
Finally got some good points for Foyt — finishing seventh after a hard weekend. We think that’s the best position we could have had. We improved the ABC Supply Chevrolet a lot but it’s still not there. Still need to improve but I’m really happy with my crew and my engineers. The guys did an awesome job in the pits-it was their first race doing pit stops together and they did a really good job. Hopefully we keep it up all year long.
Conor Daly in the No.4 ABC Supply Co Chevrolet started the race from 17th place and finished the event in 16th place. Speaking following the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, Daly commented by saying:
I have no idea what happened at the start–just massive power delivery and I just lost it. It was probably my fault but it was really unexpected. We’d been OK out of there all weekend long. The rest of the day struggled when the car was on overtake, a lot of vibrations so we couldn’t use it. It left us a little helpless. The ABC car was actually OK –pretty decent handling so maybe we could have fought for that top 10. Once we fell behind it was hard to make up. We’re still finishing races and still learning.
Next up for AJ Foyt Racing is the open Verizon IndyCar Series test at Texas Motor Speedway on Tuesday and Wednesday.
