Ed Carpenter Racing’s Conor Daly in the No.20 U.S Air Force Chevrolet starts today’s NTT IndyCar Series season-opening Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park from tenth on the grid and speaking following the action he said:

“To start the season right and qualify 10th at a true driver’s track makes me very proud of this U.S. Air Force team and Chevrolet. I’ve really been working this offseason to get my mind right and we’ve also improved a lot as a team. It’s exciting to be in the Top 10, it’s a good place to be! We have some work to do, we always want to go faster, but this race can be really interesting and we’ll see what happens.

Rinus Veekay starts the race from 14th place and speaking following the action he said:

We had a good pace in practice, but couldn’t quite show it in qualifying. I saw a cloud of dirt and maybe took it five percent easier, but that was probably the tenth I was missing! Just came up a little short, but I am glad Conor (Daly) advanced. It is very tough out there, but we will have a good car tomorrow. Ed Carpenter Racing is known for great strategy so I’m not worried all!”
