Ed Carpenter Racing’s JR Hildebrand in the No.21 Preferred Freezer Services Chevrolet ended the opening day of action at the Honda Indy Toronto in 10th place having completed 25 laps in the afternoon with a fastest time of 01:01.0735s and speaking following the day on track he commented by saying:
I’ve always liked Toronto. Even for a Friday, the energy level on Friday is super high. There were a ton of people out here, the autograph session was packed and you can see the grandstands filling in around the track. It was a pretty good first day for us. There were definitely some things to work on, but we know where can find some time. Now it is going to become about making some changes so we can go back out tomorrow and pick up that time. The Preferred Freezer guys are doing a really good job and hopefully we can continue to improve tomorrow.
Spencer Pigot in the No.20 Fuzzy’s Ultra Premium Vodka Chevrolet ended the day in 13th place with a fastest time of 01:01.1517s and speaking following the day of action he commented by saying:
We started off pretty good this morning and that continued on through this afternoon. We do need to find a little bit of balance on the red (Firestone alternate) tires, but we are encouraged by some different things we have seen in the data. We just need to look everything over to see where we can get better, then tackle those areas.
