Grand Prix of St. Petersburg Race Report

“We started on new (Firestone Alternate) Reds, but just had no grip. The fronts fell off so fast that we were just falling through the field, so we decided to come in. That kind of put the nail in the coffin – we had to save a lot of fuel every stint. We had good speed in the DHL Honda, we made some passes out there. But we had to save so much fuel in the end that we had to fight for it. It was an unfortunate day. We just had a lot of issues with how the fuel and tire situation worked out today. We’ll get back at it for Texas next weekend.”
