AJ Foyt Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais in the No.14 ROKiT Chevrolet says that the team were not able to capitalize on a solid weekend in Detroit. The two-time winner of this event came home in 16th place and speaking following the race the Frenchman commented saying:

“A promising weekend here at Detroit that still didn’t yield any kind of results we were hoping for. “I think we had quite a bit more pace than the results show, but unfortunately, all that matters are the results and we just didn’t get it done this weekend. Simply not good enough and we’re going to try and come back stronger next week.”

Dalton Kellett came home in 23rd place and speaking following the race he commented saying:

“Alright, well that was a tough one today, we had an issue in pit lane. “I’d say a big part of it’s on me. The guys have been so smooth and so quick, I was kind of getting in that muscle memory of launching as soon as the fuel probe is out. We had an issue on the right rear, and when I was looking at the outside front, I just didn’t wait to see him send me. I just went early and the right rear [tire] wasn’t quite on so I had to stop at the end of pit lane and get dragged all the way back to our box. We went down a number of laps which was pretty frustrating.”

Kellett went on to say:

“I think coming out of this weekend, our qualifying performance was definitely a big step up from where we’ve been. We were only a tenth or two from being in the middle of our group so I think that was a really good job and the car’s race pace, once we got going, was actually pretty good, so from a driving standpoint, pretty happy. The car felt great, the Foyt guys gave me a good wagon this weekend.”

The Canadian concluded by saying:

“You know we succeed as a team and we lose as a team. “We will learn from what went wrong and make sure we add that into our procedures moving forward and have a good race next weekend.”
