Ed Carpenter Racing’s head into this weekend’s inaugural IndyCar Classic at the Circuit Of The Americas in Austin Texas hoping to bounce back from a disappointing opening race in St Petersburg.
Speaking ahead of the race at COTA this weekend, Ed Jones said:
We are hoping to come back stronger at COTA. St. Pete was a challenging weekend, but we kept working through things and made really good progress. The team worked very hard to get me comfortable with the car and I was very confident in it. It was unfortunate the way qualifying ended up and the crash was super frustrating, but we had really strong pace and the car was very good. If we continue working the way we did in St. Pete, I feel that we will have a solid weekend in COTA!”
Spencer Pigot in the No.21 Autogeek Chevrolet is looking forward to an exciting weekend at COTA and is aiming to build on his eleventh place finish in St Pete.
Speaking ahead of the race he said:
It is a really exciting weekend for the NTT IndyCar Series to be heading to one of the best tracks in the country. It’s our first time racing at Circuit of the Americas so there will be a lot of unknowns that we will have to figure out as quickly as possible. I expect the track will make for some great racing and hopefully we can have our Ed Carpenter Racing Chevrolet at the front!”
