Ed Carpenter Racing’s Spencer Pigot in the No.21 AutoGeek Chevrolet said he was pretty happy with how his final warm up session went on Carb Day day ahead of Sunday’s 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge.
The Florida native commented on his day saying;
It was a pretty good session today. It was difficult out there with today’s conditions, but it was more representative of what race day is going to look like. We’ve learned a lot over the past few weeks. We will go through everything one more time and make our best decisions for the race.”
Team owner /driver Ed Carpenter in the No.20 Preferred Freezer Services Chevrolet ended the day in 18th place and speaking following the action he said:
The biggest thing we wanted for today was to get out in more race-like conditions. I feel good about the data we got and the changes we made in order to see improvements on the car. It definitely looked like a hard session for everyone, which is a good thing in my eyes. The temperature was a big factor in making today’s session hard. We could always use more practice, but I think we have had a really great week and a half of preparation. I’m really happy with the day we had and I’m ready to line us all up and get the race going
Ed Jones in the No.63 ECR with Scuderia Corsa Chevrolet ended the day in 31st place with a speed of 222.112MPH and speaking following the session he said:
It was a tough session. After the rain, the track conditions were a little different. Depending on the conditions on Sunday we will decide what to do next. We still did a good number of laps and good pit stops which is good practice for race day. Hopefully today was tougher than how it is going to feel on race day.”
