Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg Qualifying Report

We were just trying to get that extra bit today. These street circuits are always difficult that way. I had a bit of a moment there, corrected, and then it came back and I slapped the wall hard enough to bend the left, rear toe link. I whitewalled it a few times this weekend, but […]

GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma Qualifying Report

“We made the (Firestone) Fast Six, but we’re pretty disappointed with the result. We just missed a little bit with strategy and timing of our runs, and had some issues during the run that kept us from achieving the time that we had hoped to get for the DHL team. I don’t think we showed […]

Grand Prix at the Glen Qualifying Results

“We just haven’t been able to find the grip; it’s been very inconsistent. You really have to lean on the car. It’s not really giving us what we want – none of cars have been very happy this weekend. I had high hopes coming in here. We had a pretty decent test and then we […]

Iowa Corn 300 Qualifying Report

“This morning we were doing a simulation run for qualifying, and had a car come out in front of me in the middle of the corner. I just lost it, the rear end came around and we couldn’t keep it off the wall. Luckily the DHL crew got us back out before the end of […]

KOHLER Grand Prix Qualifying Report

“I have a fever and all that stuff today – the shakes, the sweats, the whole thing – not feeling so great, but anytime you’re in the race car the adrenaline just pulls all that out of you. I feel like junk, but (Josef) Newgarden has plates in his shoulder and is out there, so […]
