Meyer Shank Racing team owner Mike Shank says that Jack Harvey, driver of the No.60 AutoNation Sirius XM Honda did an awesome job in the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg on Sunday. Starting the race from second on the grid, Harvey drove brilliantly and came home in fourth place and in doing so scored the second-best result of his career.
Speaking following the race, Shank said:
“Jack did an awesome job today. “We lost a bit of pace towards the end of our stint on reds but we knew that Jack was really strong on blacks which is why we decided to finish the race that way. These are the types of results that we need to be getting this year and to start off the season this way is great for morale heading into the rest of the season.
Jack Harvey commented on the race saying:
“I think that was a solid day. “Obviously when you start on the front row, you want a podium. But overall the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda was working really well. It would have been awesome to be on the podium in AutoNation’s home race, but it’s been a really great start to the year, and that’s what we didn’t have last year. I’m really happy with everyone at Meyer Shank Racing. They have been working their butts off to have these results. We’ve been close to a pole, and to a podium today. But if we keep working at it, those things will come.”
