Detroit Grand Prix: Race 2 Report

“Somehow toward the end we picked up a puncture or leak and were losing pressure on the right rear. Then we had to stop for the red flag and the more you sit still, the quicker it deflates – it really dumped out on that red and was pretty much dead flat after the race. It was amazing we could salvage that. The DHL team fought hard all day, all weekend. It wasn’t the qualifying we hoped for, but I think we salvaged a good weekend all-in-all. It felt good to come home on a flat right rear. Happy with that end, but could have been a bit better, I think.”

After starting the race throughout the field, the Andretti stable of four all took the checkered flag on today’s 70-lap race inside the top eight. The team leaves Motor City having collected a total of 215 points between the quartet of drivers.

  • STARTED: 15th // FINISHED: 4th
