Dale Coyne Racing’s Jack Harvey in the No.18 INVST Honda had a great Children’s Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park on Sunday.

Harvey started the race from 22nd and recovered from a lap one spin to come home in 12th place.

Speaking following the action he said:

It was a lively race today. I seem to keep getting caught up in other people’s incidents. At the wrong place, at the wrong time. I spun in Turn 1 and went backwards through the gravel, but somehow, we still finished 13th. I think had that last yellow not happened, we could have had a top 10 finish today. It was a great strategy call by everyone on the 18 stand. I keep telling everybody, I feel like the momentum is building and whether there’s a bit of help of not, we’re showing it. I think we could have transferred to the second round of qualifying yesterday, and we finished 13th today. Overall, it was a pretty good weekend here at Barber Motorsports Park. Hopefully we’re building a little bit of momentum for May and we can keep this No. 18 INVST Dale Coyne Racing Honda on the sharper end and keep improving every weekend.

Luca Ghiotto started the race from 21st place in his first INDYCAR SERIES event and that is where he finished.

It was a long race and I’m happy that I got to the end. This is probably the most physical race car to drive in the world and I honestly was not sure I was fit enough to do a 90-lap race! So that was the first goal and I’m happy that we made it. As for the race itself, I think I made a little bit too many mistakes. Doing pit stops, everything was new for me, especially going from the reds to the primary tires. Every lap was something new. On one side, I’m happy that I had that experience because I learned more from those mistakes, and I’ll be more prepared when I get to Indy. I’m really looking forward to it now. It feels good now to know that I’ve been through an entire race weekend. When everything is new everything is stressful, and it was a busy week so next time in Indy it will much more relax and I can just focus on driving.”
