AJ Foyt Racing endured a tough opening day to the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma weekend. In the second practice session Friday, Conor Daly ended the day in 19th place with a fastest time of 01:17.4156s.
Speaking following day of action, Daly commented by saying:
This is a really challenging track for sure for everybody but for me (especially) because last year we had a weekend cut short by a couple of engine failures, so I’m still learning this place. I have a lot to do driving-wise to improve but we are getting there on the car. It’s been nice to have an extra test day. The balance is improving every session, so we just have to continue to close the gap and I think that’s what we’re doing.
Carlos Munoz in the No.14 ABC Supply Chevrolet finished the day in 20th place with a fastest time of 01:17.6810s and speaking following the day of action he commented by saying:
This morning wasn’t so bad, but this afternoon we made some changes to the car that didn’t work out. I didn’t extract the most out of the red tires and they are quicker, for sure. We just have to work hard for tomorrow because qualifying is quite important in this race and also to have a consistent car. I think we have made progress compared to yesterday, the car feels a little bit better than yesterday.
