Ed Carpenter Racing’s Rinus VeeKay in the No.21 Bitnile Chevrolet says his 50th NTT INDYCAR SERIES race at Barber Motorsports Park was tough.
The Dutch driver came home in 16th place and speaking following the action he commented saying:
This was a tough race! It started off pretty well even though I was saving tires and fuel pretty hard. It turned out not to be enough and at the end of my first stint, I was just too far off. We were committed to the two-stop strategy and we had to stay out. The next two stints on black tires were pretty good, but I think that yellow helped out some guys on the three-stopper. I did everything I could, but it’s really hard to get the tire deg right and save fuel at the same time.”
Conor Daly in the No.20 BitNile Chevrolet had a difficult race as he came home in 25th place and speaking following the action he commented saying:
We definitely had pace when we decided to switch to the three-stop strategy. Unfortunately, we got caught behind the 14 car and he decided to put me off the track. Not soon after, we got ran off by the 15 car and that one definitely sent us to the back. It was just too hard to recover from there.”
