Meyer Shank Racing’s Helio Castroneves in the No.06 Honda had a solid opening Hy-Vee HomeFront 250 as he started the race from 14th place, and that is where he finished the race speaking following the event the Brazilian commented saying:

“We started well, and then it wen’t really bad. The MSR guys did a phenomenal job adjusting the car with tire pressures, front wing and then I have the tools inside the car. We were then able to come back from 24th to 14th, it was a great comeback. Not the result that we necessarily wanted, but the good news is we have another race tomorrow.”

Conor Daly in the No.60 Carrie’s Country Honda started the race from 22nd place and finished the race in 21st place and speaking following the race he commented saying:

“Honestly, we had really good pace. Compared to all the other competitors, we were the 11th fastest in race pace. We were in the right place and we were making progress, but that yellow caught us out. We pitted just before the yellow which meant we were trapped and we wen’t more laps down than we [already] were. I’ve learned so much from the car, we made it better as we went and I was much more used to it at the end. I feel much better going into tomorrow. Today we just got flat out unlucky.”
