Ed Carpenter Racing’s Spencer Pigot in the No.21 Preferred Freezer Services Chevrolet says he believes the car has potential after finishing the opening day of practice for the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach just outside the top ten in eleventh place.
Speaking following the day of action Pigot commented by saying:
It was good to learn the circuit and get into it. There’s still quite a ways to go on my side and sorting the car out. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get a run on reds (Firestone alternate tires), so it’s still a bit of an unknown going into qualifying. It’s a bit annoying, it would have been nice to be able to learn a little bit more about the reds. Then again, we had the same thing happen in St. Pete and that worked out alright
Jordan King in the No.20 Fuzzy’s Vodka Chevrolet ended the day in with the 18th fastest time and speaking following the session the Englishman commented by saying:
There’s definitely potential with our Preferred Freezer Services Chevy this weekend. We had an issue with the gearbox in the second practice that kind of prevented us from getting many laps. We then put a backup stack in that wasn’t optimum for what we were trying to do. That cost us a little bit, but we made good process with the balance of the car from Practice 1 to Practice 2. Hopefully we can make a similar step tomorrow.
