Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda said he that it was an average day for him and the No.9 crew on Thursday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The Iceman who completed 98 laps set the 12th fastest time of the day with a speed of 223.973MPH commented saying:
“I think it was maybe more of just an average day for us today. We did quite a bit of running in the PNC Bank car, but the conditions were just really difficult. When the track temp is hot like it was today, it just makes things tricky. We ended the day with a lot of race running with a number of other cars, to help us get more information for next week.”
Ed Jones in the No.10 NTT DATA Honda finished the day in 19th place with a fastest speed of 223.379MPH completing 79 laps and speaking following the action he said:
Overall we just spent a lot of time working on the balance of the car. It’s not really where we want it to be right now. We made a lot of changes, including a change back to a previous setup we ran here. Every day you learn something new here around Indianapolis, and we’re improving the NTT DATA car each time.”
