Rainguard Water Sealers 600 Qualifying Report

  “We’re making small steps. We missed the open test here so we’re a few steps behind our teammates in the competition and speeds. We’re trying to catch up, but we need to make sure that we’re doing that methodically and not just swinging for the fences. Practice this morning was a start and qualifying […]

Indianapolis 500 Report: Day 2 Qualifying Report

“(Qualifying) was a wild ride. It was a testament to the team, they put a great car underneath me, it’s been that way for a week and a half now. We just had a bad qualifying draw yesterday and didn’t have the track conditions that were best for the run. I’m glad to get qualifying […]

Indianapolis 500 Report: Day 1 Qualifying Report

“We were just sliding around too much, overall. When you do that, you lose speed, and it takes away from the overall average. It’s a disappointing run considering the speed we had this past week. It wasn’t the run we had in mind. We were too low on grip to really have a shot at […]

Grand Prix of Long Beach Qualifying Report

Grand Prix of Long Beach

“Certainly much better than last year (at Long Beach). This team has worked so hard over the offseason and we’ve all worked together – that’s the important thing – a lot of testing and we’ve definitely found a good direction now. It’s great to have this yellow and red DHL Honda back up where it […]

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 […]
