Ed Carpenter Racing’s Jordan King in the No.20 Fuzzy’s Vodka Chevrolet will start today’s Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach from 12th place having set a fastest time of 01:07.6427s and speaking following the session he commented by saying:
“I was happy to get through the first session as obviously that’s the first thing you’ve got to do. I didn’t get a great lap in on the second session. I think maybe the crash I had earlier made me have to reset slightly, which didn’t help. We should have been closer to the cusp, maybe not quite quick enough to get through. We should have definitely been better than 12th, 10th or 8th, that kind of region. Overall still a positive run, but from a personal performance I think there was more to be had.
Spencer Pigot in the No.21 Preferred Freezer Services Chevrolet starts the race from 18th place and speaking following the session he commented by saying:
We’ve made some really good changes to the car throughout the weekend, but this is a tough track. When it came time for qualifying, we really struggled with grip and when we put the red tires on, it just wasn’t there for us. We will go back and look at everything and focus on getting better for tomorrow.”
