AJ Foyt Racing’s Sting Ray Robb in the No.41 Goodheart Chevrolet led his first laps at the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday after going off strategy and eventually came home in 16th place, having started the race from 23rd place and speaking following the action, the Idaho native commented saying:

“I think that was the most fun I’ve had in a race car on an oval. “The team did such a good job on the stops. I went long on one but they kept it together. Great stops all day, great strategy. That last yellow, if it wasn’t for that, I think we would have been fighting for the win. I’m so proud of these guys, I thought we were the car to beat out there. It feels so good. I’m so happy.”

Robb went on to say:

“Goodheart has been with us for five years, “I think it’s the first dog (referring to the No. 41’s paw prints livery) to cross the start/finish line in the lead in the Indy 500 so huge thank you to them for sticking with us and getting the rewards for it. Pray.com was a new partner this year and we wouldn’t be here without them so I’m grateful that they’re a part of this. I love our brands, our partners, and I want more to join the ride so they can experience this with us. “

Santino Ferrucci had hoped to repeat his strong performance here from last year after returning home in third place. This year, he started the race from sixth place but fell back towards the end, dropping down the order, but recovered well to finish the race in eighth place. Speaking following the race he commented saying:

Real proud of the team today, solid effort all around. It’s been a far from a perfect month of May. This was definitely one of the most difficult months of May I’ve had in my six years at this place with the least amount of track time. But we made history today with six top 10s in a row from my rookie start, we raised hopefully over $4 million for our charity Homes For Our Troops which is impressive and that means more than anything else.

“I think we look back on this month as a whole to understand how we could have been better, try to learn, and come back next year to compete to win again. Our teammate Sting Ray did an incredible job leading the race, no easy feat especially in his second year. He looked good and did a helluva job to come up from where he did and nearly get in the top 15. It’s great momentum for the 41 car and all of the boys. They really needed that because they had a rocky start this year.
