Dreyer & Reinbold Racing’s Sage Karam in the No.24 Wix Filters Chevrolet was happy to end practice for the 102nd running of Indianapolis 500 presented PennGrade Motor Oil on Monday.
The American set a fastest speed of 226.461MPH and speaking following the session he commented by saying:
“I ended up P1, which is cool and all. “It doesn’t really mean too much, though. We have some work to do for the race. The main goal for today was to work on the race car and work on pit stops. I haven’t done pit stops since last May. We got those done and did some traffic runs to make the car better.
Karam went on to say:
“We always have a really good race car here. “I was able to run with the ‘fast guys’ and ran with them steadily. This race will be very challenging and probably the most challenging in my five years here. We have to get the car right and have perfect pit stops to win this race.
