AJ Foyt Racing’s Charlie Kimball in the No.4 Tresiba® Chevrolet says that racing an IndyCar at Iowa Speedway is like racing fighter jets in a high school gym.
Kimball finished race one at Iowa Speedway in 17th place. Speaking following the race on Friday he said:
I think it was a disappointing night for both AJ Foyt Racing cars. The No. 4 Tresiba Chevrolet was not what I wanted to feel underneath me, but I know the engineers will do really good work making it better tonight. I felt like everyone did a good job with what we had. Today was busy, practice, qualify and straight into the race – especially racing what you qualify. We had to compromise on gears, ride heights and setups and stuff, but it was the same for everyone and we just didn’t maximize it. But we’ll review it and be ready to go for another 250 laps tomorrow night.
Kimball starts tonight’s race from 11th place on the grid and taking to Facebook on Saturday afternoon he explained:
I’ve always said racing @indycar at @iowaspeedway is like racing fighter jets in a high school gym. After last night, I’m confirming that analogy, and let’s go do it again tonight. Saturday night – short track – under the lights – in Iowa! @nbcsports 8:30ET.
