Grand Prix of Portland Race Report

“We gave that one away. The DHL car was the car to beat today – we had the right fuel but we had some miscommunication on pit lane. I was saving fuel as Takuma came out of the pit lane and so I didn’t attack. That miscommunication probably cost us the race. I’m pretty bummed right now. I know we had a car to win and all day long I tried really hard to save that fuel and made the fuel mileage the stand was requesting, but couldn’t pay off for it in the end.”

Andretti Autosport collected it’s 14th-podium finish of the season today as DHL driver Ryan Hunter-Reay grabbed a second-place finish at the Grand Prix of Portland.
