AJ Foyt Racing endured a disappointing qualifying for the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach which takes place today.
Mathues ‘Matt’ Leist in the No.4 ABC Supply Chevrolet starts the race from 20th place having set a fastest time of 01:07.7317s and speaking following the session he commented by saying:
Unfortunately, things didn’t go our way. We’re struggling a little bit with the car. The conditions changed so much from practice and qualifying, you never know what’s going to be good and what’s going to be bad. I was just not comfortable driving the car today, pretty much the whole weekend. Hopefully, things are going to start to get better. We still have a warmup tomorrow, so we’ll see if we can make some improvements to have a good race car.
Tony Kanaan in the No.14 ABC Supply Chevrolet starts the race from 21st place with a time of 03:22.3800s after hitting the wall during Group one qualifying on Saturday and speaking following the session the Brazilian said:
Somehow we lost our way last night and it was my fault trying to make up for something that we don’t have. It’s frustrating, I shouldn’t have made the mistake, I should have known better, but that’s my competitive side. I’m always going to try to do better and it’s frustrating. Somewhere, somehow last night we lost our way, so we’ve got to regroup tonight, and hopefully, we’ll have a better race car for tomorrow.”
