Ed Carpenter Racing endured a tough qualifying session for the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season finale as Spencer Pigot in the No.20 Fuzzy’s Vodka Chevrolet starts the race from 17th place.
Speaking following the session he commented by saying:
We’ve been struggling to find grip all weekend and we definitely didn’t find it in qualifying. We’ll go back to the drawing board tonight and try to get this Fuzzy’s Vodka Chevy a little more competitive for tomorrow.”
JR Hildebrand in the No.21 Fuzzy’s Vodka Chevrolet starts his last race with ECR from 20th place and speaking following the session he commented by saying:
It’s nice to be back at Sonoma, for sure. Unfortunately, we’ve been struggling at these permanent road courses this year. We rolled off the truck and and felt okay on the test day. We were running mid-pack for a lot of the day and we felt like we were going to be able to continue to make the car better and find some gains. We’ve been trying a lot of the right things, but it just seems like something is missing. It’s frustrating, especially being back here on home turf, not to just be more competitive all together. We’ve got some options for the race tomorrow, it’s always a long race. If we can look after our tires, we’ll have a good run. Hopefully, we can finish out the season with a solid final result.”
