Veekay Delighted With Fourth In Race 2

Ed Carpenter Racing’s Rinus Veekay in the No.21 Sonax Chevrolet started Sunday’s Bommarito Automotive Group 500 race 2 at World Wide Technology Raceway from 18th and came through the field to finish the race in fourth and speaking following the action he commented saying:

“It was a great race, one of the best races I have ever driven. Yesterday, I started 14th and finished sixth, so today, starting 18th, I was aiming for a top-10 finish. I had an amazing first lap, got around a lot of guys. The strategy was brilliant, so shout out to my team for making this possible. Those last few laps were very tough; everyone was all over the place. Just missed out on the podium, but I don’t care about that right now. P4 was the best I could do.”

Team owner Ed Carpenter in the No.20 U.S Air Force Chevrolet came home in 21st place in his final race of the 2020 NTT IndyCar Series season and speaking following the action he said:

This was a really disappointing end to a very tough year. It was really only a couple of months since our first race was in June. It started off well there, but it’s been a lot of bad luck since then. Today was just another tough day. The car wasn’t the same after I got hit at the start yesterday. There are still a few races left in 2020, so we’ll focus on Rinus (VeeKay) and Conor (Daly) and finish out the season strong as a team.”
