Grand Prix of Portland Race Report

“I feel terrible for the team. I was racing [Alexander] Rossi and got caught up in the fight, then broke too deep. I missed it by a good half a marker in the braking and got into Jack Harvey – feel bad for them. Apologies to the team, to DHL, AutoNation and our partners. We should have had a pretty good day today. This is one on me.”

The 2019 Grand Prix of Portland brought a podium finish and small climb in points for Alexander Rossi, while Ryan Hunter-Reay was not as fortunate, suffering from an on-track incident during the 105-lap event.
