ABEL Motorsports rookie Indianapolis 500 driver RC Enerson in the No.50 Chevrolet says that the final practice ahead of Carb Day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Monday was tough.
Enerson completed 61 laps of the Speedway and ended the day in 25th place with a speed of 224.286MPH and speaking following the action he commented saying:
“It was tough out there today. “We were in really dirty air a lot, and we had to make a lot of changes to the car. It’s about getting me comfortable with the car to race that way Sunday. I haven’t had much chance to get used to that as yet. Having Spencer Pigot as my spotter is key; he’s run this race several times and been good here, and he knows what it’s like to race under these conditions, so I’m really leaning on him. Now, we’ll get ready for Friday (Carb Day final practice) and see where we can get better. Can’t wait for the weekend to get here!”
ABEL Motorsports Team manager John Brunner commented saying:
We just needed to get some running time in traffic. This was our first go at that, and we had to make some changes, which we expected. (RC’s) comfort level was a little less today, but we expected that, and he handled it just fine. We’ll work on it the rest of way on Carb Day (Friday). I’m not worried about pace at all. We’ll have good race pace. Starting where we’re starting (29th), we’re going to be in really dirty air for a long way, so our job is to get the car as ready for that and the driver as ready for that as we can. We’re going out there to try to see the checkered flag, and bring home as good a result as we can.”
