Tuesday’s Indianapolis 500 practice washout could prove to beneficial to Abel Motorsports, the NTT INDYCAR SERIES newest team.
Speaking following the washout, Abel Motorsports Team manager Brunner said:
“We would have liked to have had our install lap today, but nobody got to run. We didn’t lose any track time to anyone today. I like what they’ve done with the schedule for tomorrow. We’ll get the (ROP) refresher done in the morning and then we can run all day with everybody. I like where we’re sitting.
Team owner Bill Abel is just excited to see his car on track and says it helped them to extra preparation.
For us (the rain) allowed us to get a few additional things done on the car that we needed to do. We went through tech (inspection) and we went back through tech again, which let us correct a couple of things we needed to fix. It just slowed things down a bit for us, kind of a reset time for us that’s probably good.”
