Juncos Racing’s Spencer Pigot in the No.11 Chevrolet had a tough Fast Friday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Friday, the final day of practice before qualifying for next weekend’s 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil.
The Florida native hit the wall at Turn 2 causing major damage to his car and speaking following the session after been cleared by the medical team, he stated:
“I’m not really sure what happened. I entered Turn 2. It had not been an issue for us all week. Before I knew it, I was backwards. We’ll have to go back and look and see what happened. I’m fine. The cars are really safe and it wasn’t that bad a hit. I don’t think the actual chassis is damaged, so we’ll go put some new parts on it and get back out tomorrow.”
Sebastian Saavedra in the No.17 AFS/Juncos Racing Chevrolet commented on his day by saying:
First of all, I’m very appreciative of the amazing job the whole team did from yesterday to today. We got an amazing amount of speed without any tows, which is exactly what we’re looking for this weekend. Today still was not the day we wanted, still very draggy and we don’t know where that’s coming from. Tonight is going to be another one of those brain nights with the engineers to get more speed from the No. 17 AFS/Juncos Racing car, but we’re getting there. I’m very focused on continuing the good path that we’ve been on so far.”
