Bommarito Automotive Group 500 Race Report

“Really bummed to end the race from the garages. We had a problem with fuel pressure – the car just shut off on the front straight and we weren’t able to recover. It’s a shame because we were really making the 28 DHL Honda fly. The track just kept getting more and more grip and we were able to get more aggressive. We were just getting into the mix, the car was coming to us. We were going to fight Will [Power] for the win at the end.”

  • STARTED: 5th // FINISHED: 20th
  • CHAMPIONSHIP: 5th (421 pts.)
  • OF NOTE: Was running in third with eyes on the podium before falling victim to mechanical issues, parking the No. 28 after 172 laps // At 147 points behind Dixon, Hunter-Reay is fifth in the standings and the only other Andretti driver with a mathematical chance to win the championship
