Speaking following the action he said:
Today was quite an adventure. We had some decent pace moving through the field a little bit. Now, I am really excited for Long Beach, I love Long Beach! I’ve won there in Indy Lights and I just really enjoy driving that track. Street racing is fun, so it’s going to be great to close out the season with a fun race!”
Rinus VeeKay in the No.21 Sonax Chevrolet came from 24th place to finish the race in 18th and speaking following the action he said:
“I was really struggling on the black tires at the start today, but the reds felt really good and I could put good lap times in. The four-stop strategy was good was well, but we had a miscommunication and I did an unnecessary drive through. It was unfortunate, but now we can look forward to Long Beach! I really want to end the year on a high note, that would be great for confidence heading into the offseason. Hopefully, we can put in a strong result there!”
