AJ Foyt Racing’s Zach Veach in the No.40 Indy Women in Tech Championship Chevrolet was really happy with his opening day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Veach completed just 23 laps and ended the day in 30th place and speaking following the day he commented by saying:
Overall, even though we only got a few laps of running, we’re really happy with today. We’re still just getting last bits of body fit done on the car and getting us prepared for the rest of the week and qualifying of course. I really want to thank my A.J. Foyt guys for working so hard and getting us out there at the end. I’m really excited, the car showed a lot of speed just even in rookie orientation, so the effort that we were having to do the laps we were doing is really surprising because the car just wants to go fast already. I think that we have a really good platform for the rest of the week, so I’m really excited to see what the IWiT (Indy Women in Tech) car can do later this week, but tomorrow I expect us to be running towards the front for sure.
Conor Daly in the No.4 ABC Supply Co Chevrolet ended the day in 28th place and speaking following the session he commented by saying:
Obviously, it was a good first day for us because we were able to get out on track and run. Performance-wise, I don’t think we got to where we want to be yet. But we just had to get out on track for the first day and just make sure everything is running fine, which it is. The next step is just to continue to go faster.
Carlos Munoz ended the session in 20th place in the No.14 ABC Supply Co Chevrolet and speaking about his day in the car he commented by saying:
On the first day we always check how everything works and see what the best line is for the car, which was OK. We still have work to do. We need to find a little bit more speed and that’s hard but we have to make the car feel good, but it was a good first day. We didn’t have any problems. We improved the car a little bit but we still have a long way to go.
