Genesys 300 Race Report

“Incredibly unfortunate events got us at the start of the race. The team did a great job and turned the car around for qualifying. I got in it and drove the wheels off it — up to P4 in qualifying. It ended up being a track position race which would’ve really benefited us and unfortunately, we had an issue with the electronics starting up and had to make a change. Because of the impound rule for the event, we got penalized twice. I’m not really sure why the cartoon anvil keeps dropping on the 28 but it’s definitely getting old. Great job by the whole 28 DHL Honda team. We had a good car to represent our partners and our teammates great today, but we were robbed.”

After a three-month delay due to the global COVID-19 health crisis, the 2020 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season is finally underway. An adapted Round 1 of competition took the field of 24 to No Limits, Texas for the Genesys 300 at Texas Motor Speedway.

The one-day show saw practice, qualifying and a 200-lap main event all in one day under the blazing Texas sun. With a first race in the books, and a re-energized paddock, the Series heads home and awaits the next race in just under a months time.

The GMR INDYCAR Grand Prix will run in conjunction with NASCAR’s Brickyard 400 over the Fourth of July weekend. Both events will be run without spectators.

  • STARTED: 4th // FINISHED: 8th
  • CHAMPIONSHIP: 8th (24 pts.)
  • OF NOTE: Hunter-Reay qualified fourth after having the day’s only practice cut short due to contact exiting Turn 2. // The 28 experienced electrical issues when engines fired at the start of the race, dropping the 28 to the back of the field and taking a drive-through penalty for unapproved service. The DHL driver fought his way from the back of the pack to finish eighth.
