Dale Coyne Racing with HMD Motorsports David Malukas in the No.18 HMD Honda says that the team struggled on qualifying day for Saturday’s GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the IMS road course.
Malukas will roll off from 20th place on the grid with a time of 01:10.2562s, and speaking following the action, he commented saying:
“We struggled today. We’re not where we need to be with our road course car. In the practice sessions we struggled to make it into the top 15 and it seems we’re kind of moving backwards instead of forward. We’re trying a lot of things, nothing has quite clicked for us yet, but, that said, I’m confident we’ll figure it out. In qualifying, my lap wasn’t great either so that was on me and, I’m kicking myself for it. I’m going to recharge and reset tonight and be ready for warm-up and the race tomorrow. Hopefully we’ll have a good race car, and we can make our way to the front.”
Sting Ray Robb in the No.52 BioHaven Dale Coyne Racing with RWR rolls off from 22nd place and speaking following the action he commented saying:
“We just finished up qualifying here at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course. I love this place! It’s such an awesome racetrack, and any time you get to drive at the Brickyard is special. Qualifying didn’t go as we wanted, but we’re making steps forward and we learned a lot once again today. We’ll keep learning and making progress in the warm-up tomorrow and be ready for the race. Hopefully the rain stays away tomorrow, fingers crossed for that! Good job to the team, everyone is working hard.”
