Schmidt Peterson Motorsports James Hinchcliffe in the No.5 Arrow Electronics Honda endured a difficult and disappointing race on Saturday night at the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 at Gateway Motorsports Park.
The Mayor of HinchTown started the race from eighth place and came home in 15th.
Speaking following the race he said:
Pretty disappointing day, obviously. We just didn’t have the pace in the fuel save mode and had to have been in a fuel-save strategy twice, which kind of puts in you the worst of both worlds. It was a tough day for us and not the result we were hoping for. We have had a good short oval package so far this year. I think if the race played out differently with the cautions, we could have still had a good finish in the Arrow Electronics car, but ultimately it wasn’t in the cards today. Now we regroup and move onto Portland and the last two races.”
