Ed Jones in the No.20 Chevrolet for Ed Carpenter Racing with Scuderia Corsa says he is feeling pretty confident following the opening day of track action at the Circuit Of The Americas in Austin Texas ahead of Sunday’s inaugural IndyCar Classic.

Speaking following the day’s action he said:

“The day started off with a tough Practice 1. We had an issue with the throttle sticking, which compromised the session a lot. I think we ended up last, so it really wasn’t representative of our pace. We didn’t really get a good read which really put us on the back foot for Practice 2. We worked hard making good progress on each run and the (Firestone alternate) red tires worked really well. We also had a good long run at the end there. I feel pretty confident, we just need to keep working overnight and make sure we keep up with how the track evolves.”

Spencer Pigot in the No.21 Ed Carpenter Racing Chevrolet was happy with the work the team accomplished on Friday saying:

 “We tried a lot of things today, some things worked better than others, but we got a lot accomplished. The good thing was our teammate was quick, so we can compare notes to see where we were different and where we can make improvements. We’ll put it all together tomorrow.”
