AJ Foyt Racing’s Charlie Kimball in the No.4 Tresiba ® Chevrolet says he hopes he can score a top ten finish in today’s GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the Indy road course following a disappointing qualifying which saw the Californian qualify in 24th place.
Speaking following qualifying, Kimball said:
Honestly, pretty disappointed,” said Kimball, who posted a . “It was not the result that anyone at AJ Foyt Racing wants, not anything that the No. 4 car wanted, but I still have a huge amount of faith in the team, the guys, the engineers tonight. Headed into the engineering office, we’re gonna work on it, look through all the data, talk about previous experiences here plus what tomorrow’s going to bring strategy-wise, weather-wise. It’s supposed to be another hot one tomorrow, so that changes a little bit with what we do, but I have every bit of confidence that come warmup tomorrow morning the No. 4 Tresiba Chevrolet will be faster. And then in the race we’ll roll some strategy dice and hopefully end up inside the top 10.”
Dalton Kellett in the No.41 K Line Insulators Chevrolet will start his first NTT IndyCar Series race from 26th place and speaking following qualifying he commented saying:
First INDYCAR qualifying is in the books. “What better place to do it than at Indianapolis? This is the track that means a lot to me and means a lot to the team – all their history here – so I can’t think of somewhere better to have that great first experience. It’s definitely been a learning day without having a lot of testing in the offseason given the big break and all that. Just trying to go hard right off the bat on the Firestone reds — it’s pretty tough — and definitely something that I’m going to have to learn and get better at as the season progresses. But I think we’ll be reviewing the day, looking at the onboard between the 14 and the 4 cars and seeing what we can learn from that and make improvements for tomorrow’s race.”
