Ed Carpenter Racing endured a disappointing end to the 2019 NTT IndyCar Series season at the Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca on Sunday. Spencer Pigot in the No.21 Autogerk Chevrolet who started Sunday’s race from 15th place came home in 20th place and speaking following the the racehe said:
It was not a very strong race for us. I am disappointed to end the season on this kind of note. There were some positives throughout the year that we can look back on, but also some areas we need to work on. I want to thank everyone at Ed Carpenter Racing for always trying their best and making the most of every situation! We’ll work to be better next time.
Ed Jones in the No.20 Sonax Chevrolet started the race from 18th place and came home in 23rd place just ahead of Dale Coyne Racing’s Santino Ferrucci in the No.19 Cly Del Manufacturing Honda and speaking following the race he said:
“It was a frustrating weekend and even though we didn’t quite have the pace, we worked hard during the race. Obviously the restarts are quite eventful, when it goes green you are allowed to pass and it seems a lot of people didn’t realize that going into Turn 11. I made up a few places, then again into Turn 2 I was making up some more. We were on the outside of the track when another car just drove straight into us. Unfortunately, it damaged the car and we had to retire from the race.”
