Chip Ganassi Racing’s Max Chilton who drives the No.8 Gallagher Honda in the Verizon IndyCar Series was retired from the ABC Supply 500 at Pocono Raceway two weeks ago.
During Saturday night’s Bommarito Automotive Group 500 presented by Valvoline at Gateway Motorsports Park, NBCSN broadcast radio from Chilton asking his Ganassi team:
Are we a quitting team?
Chilton retired from the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 presented by Valvoline on Saturday night after hitting the wall at Turn 4.
Speaking following the race Chilton said:
It just all happened very quickly. I was just stuck behind (Carlos) Munoz prior to that last stop for probably 40 or so laps. We came out just behind him on the exchange and were desperate to get around him. I had a really good run in Turn 3, but the car just turned around on me. We added a turn of front wing on that last stop and it just caught me out. We were struggling with straight line speed, so you had to stay as close as you could to the guy in front of you. That was it and it was game over pretty quickly for the Gallagher car.
