Dale Coyne Racing had an extremely strong race at the IndyCar Grand Prix at Watkins Glen presented by Hitachi.
Starting the race from 17th place, Conor Daly in the No.18 Jonathan Byrd’s Hospitality Honda did a fantastic job to come home in fourth place and speaking following the race, Daly commented by saying:
I really just can’t believe that we ended up fourth! It was a back and forth race with all kinds of stuff going on. But our car was fast, we knew it all weekend. We just had horrible luck. At the end they said we were making the right fuel number and I was making up positions and then I was told we could go a little bit quicker, so one lap we used a bit more fuel and then they came on the radio and said ‘code red’. If we would’ve saved a little bit more on that one lap we maybe could have held off Helio. I had no idea where we were, third or fourth or fifth, but at the end of the day, I’ll take fourth!
RC Enerson was extremely impressive in the No.19 Boy Scouts of America Honda as he qualified ahead of Daly for the second race, starting from 11th place and coming home in 9th place.
