AJ Foyt Racing’s Santino Ferrucci in the No.14 Sexton Properties Chevrolet recorded the team’s best result of the season at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach on Sunday.
Starting the race from P18, Ferucci made a great start to the event and made his way up to the ten before being pushed back to 11th.
It was a fantastic result for the team and speaking following the action, Ferrucci said:
Solid day here in Long Beach. “It’s our first actual result as a team, P11. So, all things considered, I think we did a great job, the team did a great job on pit road — passed a bunch of cars and moved forward for what was a very long green (flag) race. I’m worn out, but I’m just happy day that we are improving, we look better, and everything feels better, so onto the next one.”
Benjamin Pedersen in the No.55 Sexton Properties Chevrolet had a solid start to the day ending race day warm up in P15.
In the race however, he was forced to serve a drive through and finished the race in 24th and speaking following the action he said:
Unfortunately, not a very smooth race for us. “Started out great with our warm up today. We were very competitive, P15. Very honest lap time in terms of how much Push to Pass we used and everything. However, in the race we just had a lot of internal issues with a couple of things with the car, etc., and an unfortunate penalty. We’re going to take what we learned and move on. On the bright side, we had very good pace in the race. Top-10 pace for sure. We’ll just keep working really hard and get the little kinks fixed, and onwards to Barber.
