Iowa INDYCAR 250s – Race 2 Report

“I was looking to make up a lot of track time on that out lap and I short-shifted out of second gear, knowing that first [gear] was my problem last night. I got on it in second and it just came around. I almost caught it – but almost doesn’t count. It sucks. The guys on the 28 team certainly don’t deserve that. We had a rough night, we were hanging on, but we were at least P6, P7. We were really looking forward to getting the ball rolling here for the season. It’s been one thing or another, and obviously this is down to me. It’s unfortunate. DHL and AutoNation, they all deserve results and we are working on it. I was just pushing 110% and just asked a little too much of it there.”

After another night of racing under the Iowa Speedway lights, the Andretti quintet charged the grid for the 250-lap race, ending the weekend with mixed results. Rounding out this weekend’s doubleheader, the team now has three weeks to prepare for Round 7 at Mid-Ohio.
