Juncos Racing’s Kyle Kaiser who bumped Fernando Alonso and McLaren from the field for the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge was left disappointed after retiring from the race following contact on lap 71.
Speaking following the race he said:
We went high and caught the marbles in Turn 3. We were just a passenger with a lot of understeer. Once it gripped back up, the car just spun around on us. I was hoping we would be able to recover it, but unfortunately we couldn’t. Obviously, an extremely disappointing result for us after a such a wild month. I really feel for the guys and all the work they put in for us all month. Not the result we were hoping for, by any means. But we can’t hold our heads down. We were competing out there, and I’m so proud of the guys all month. Everyone can be so proud. Thank you for all the sponsors and everyone who came onboard this month. 250ok, NFP, GMR, Hagerty, River Plate Indiana, and so many more joined our effort, and we are so proud to have represented them today. This team has made great strides, and only positive things ahead for us moving forward.
