Harding Racing’s Vice President of Operations Vince Kremer says he is proud of the teams efforts during the Chevrolet Dual In Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear last weekend. In race one, Gabby Chaves finished the race in 18th place.
In the second race, Chaves finished the event in 19th place and speaking about the weekend, Kremer said:
Really proud of the whole team. “They showed perseverance and dedication to put together another solid race car for Gabby. Detroit is a very tough race weekend coming out of Indianapolis and the guys were diligently and tirelessly to get the car together. We struggled a little bit to get the pace and set up right, but we never gave up.
Gabby Chaves who drives the No.88 Chevrolet commented on Saturday’s race by saying:
We just finished the first part of the Detroit Doubleheader weekend, “We learned a lot out there during the race today. I know that the guys are going to work hard to take what we learned out there to make the necessary changes before tomorrow’s race. I know we’ll have some improvements, so we can make sure the #88 is closer to the front
Speaking about Sunday’s race, the Colombian commented by saying:
“Definitely a trying weekend for us in Detroit, especially race two today. “I thought we had the right strategy, but one of the cars spun coming out of pit lane and I picked up some debris. This caused us to think the tire was going flat, so we came to the pits which cost us a lot of time. After that we just wanted to make it cleanly to the finish because we didn’t really have anything to gain at that point. Now we look to Texas next weekend, we finished fifth last year so I’m hoping we can manage a finish like that again.
