Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama Race Report

“We started fifth with the DHL car, which was positive since we started 18th here last year, so we were looking forward to capitalizing on that and then lost ground on the start. At the beginning of the race (James) Hinchcliffe just tracked out and hit me, the contact broke our front wing. We went to the back and worked our way to what should have been a 10-place finish, but then Mikhail (Aleshin) knocked me off the track right at the end. It was an eventful day, but not the finish we were looking for. Looking forward to moving on to Phoenix.”

Sunday’s 90-lap Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama came with gloomy skies as the day started under wet conditions. With Ryan Hunter-Reay starting form the third row, optimism was high for race day at Barber.

  • Started 5 // Finished 11
  • Made contact on the opening laps resulting in an off-sequence pit stop for a front wing change
  • Battled his way back to the top 10 before being forced to 11th at the race end and leaves Alabama eighth in the driver standings

From Birmingham, the Verizon IndyCar Series will head west for Round 4 of competition at Phoenix Raceway under the lights on April 29 with broadcast on NBC Sports Network at 9 p.m. ET.
