Harding Racing and Gabby Chaves in the No.88 Chevrolet started their second Verizon IndyCar Series race at the Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday night from 20th place. The Colombian came through the field to finish the race in fifth place.
Chaves avoided the chaos to finish the race just behind Graham Rahal to pick up his second top ten finish of the season.
Speaking following the race, Chaves commented by saying:
We did what we had to do. We kept our nose clean. We had a solid car. I think before the accidents, we were inside the top 12. We had great Chevy power until the end, and just made the passes when we had to. Just really proud of the team effort.
The team’s next race will be the ABC Supply 500 at Pocono Raceway on August 20 before the team go full-time in the Verizon IndyCar Series in 2018.
