Harding Racing’s Gabby Chaves in the No.88 Chevrolet was left disappointing following qualifying for today’s Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. The Colombian will start today’s 85 lap race from 19th place on the grid having set a qualifying time of 01:08.8623s.
Speaking following the session, Chaves commented by saying:
“It looked like rush hour traffic out there for us unfortunately. There were a lot of cars not following the rules as they should be and putting other cars behind them, so it was unfortunate we got stuck. We only got our one time lap when we were trying to get two or three and that really cost a lot. I don’t know where we would have ideally ended up, but it was not 19th or 20th, we were better than that today. So it’s just unfortunate, we’ll keep working and move up in the race.
