AJ Foyt Racing’s Santino Ferrucci in the No.14 Sexton Properties Chevrolet says that it was a good race at Barber Motorsports Park given the fact that he didn’t qualify for the race.
Ferrucci finished the race in 20th place, and speaking following the action he commented saying:
“It was a solid Sunday for us considering we didn’t qualify. “Just tough with strategy, we struggled with the car. I think we were a little bit too free on entry and a little too tight in the middle (of the corner) but, all in all, a top 20 for us is something to walk away with. We completed all the race laps and you know what, I can’t complain. So, looking forward to the month of May now and we’ll go from there.”
Benjamin Pedersen, in the No.55 Sexton Properties Chevrolet, was competing in his first Barber weekend as an NTT INDYCAR SERIES driver and qualified in 25th and came home in 22nd place. Speaking following the action, he commented saying:
“Great race here at Barber, finished P22 after starting pretty close to the back. “Crazy race, lots of really cool passes, always something going on, very busy race. Pretty proud of what we were able to do today. I think there was potential to maybe be in the top 15, but we had a couple mistakes happen. But overall, very positive and very happy with the race.
“Strategy was very good. It was an attacking strategy today,” he continued. “We hit our fuel numbers very well. It was very tight margins but the whole team did a great job being very precise and close on making it on fuel and that’s exactly what we were asking for, so very good day.”
