Ed Carpenter Racing’s Rinus VeeKay in the No.21 BitNile.com Chevrolet will roll off from 13th for Sunday’s BitNile.com Portland Grand Prix and speaking following the action the Dutch driver commented saying:

I lost three-tenths in Turns 2 and 3. Every time I went through there, I got a huge snap and couldn’t get back to power. I am really upset about this. I should have been in the Fast 6, not kicked out of the Top 12. I am happy I get a night of sleep before the race. It’s really hard to accept. There is a lot more we could have done and we should have advanced. On to tomorrow.”

Ryan Hunter-Reay in the No.20 BitNile.com Chevrolet starts the race from 26th place and speaking following the action he commented saying:

The car definitely felt better in qualifying. The field is super close, but we are on the wrong side of about three-tenths. The team made good changes to the car and I was pretty happy with it. It’s just a matter of consistency through Turns 1 and 2. I can’t get through there without constantly having to save the rear of the car over the curbs. We’ll have to take a look at that. Unfortunately, we have a six-spot penalty for an engine change, so that’s going to put us in the back. We are hoping for a good showing for BitNile here at the BITNILE.COM Grand Prix!
