Honda Indy Toronto Race Report

“It’s was a very unfortunate day and a big loss for us in points. The DHL Honda was running comfortable in third and pushing hard, but I had too much front brake lock and found the tire barrier – that’s my fault. Then after that, we got caught up in a wreck which put us a lap down. From there we just fought to stay in front of the leader and salvage as much as we could.”

The checkered flag has flown over the streets of Toronto, the final street race of the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series. After an action-filled, dramatic race, the team heads home with Ryan Hunter-Reay finishing 16th. We now look forward to a clean slate and the chance to earn more championship points at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

  • STARTED: 6th // FINISHED: 16th
  • CHAMPIONSHIP: 4th (373 pts.)
  • OF NOTE: Dashed to the third position on the opening lap, running strong with the leaders // On Lap 28 locked the brakes of the DHL machine which sent Hunter-Reay in to the tire barriers of Turn 3 // After restarting the car and making his way around the track, Hunter-Reay pitted for a front wing change // Misfortune continued as Hunter-Reay was caught in an incident when the 15 car spun on track, bring the racing machine back to pit lane for an additional wing change on Lap 35, dropping Hunter-Reay a lap down

Round 13 of competition will begin on Friday, July 27, with practice sessions. Qualifying will take place on Saturday with the green flag waving for the 90-lap race on Sunday at 3:35 p.m. ET.
