KOHLER Grand Prix Race Report

“Hats off to Josef [Newgarden], he did a great job. I thought we had the pace for him early on, but after we took that second to last set of [Firestone] reds — and then at the end with him on the new reds — I could keep up with him for a bit, but then in the dirty air I just couldn’t do anything with him. That’s about all we had today. I thought the car was really good. I was hoping to make it a better show for the fans – I was hoping to get up there and make it interesting. I gave it 110% the whole way. Big thanks to the 28 DHL team – rock stars in the pit lane and continuing the consistency.”

After 55 laps at Elkhart Lake’s National Park of Speed, Ryan Hunter-Reay collects another podium finish for the Andretti team, driving the 28 DHL Honda to second place. The team leaves Road America with three drivers in the top 10 in points standings.

  • STARTED: 3rd // FINISHED: 2nd
  • CHAMPIONSHIP: 2nd (348 pts. // tie with Rossi)
  • OF NOTE: Today’s second-place finish is Hunter-Reay’s fourth podium finish of 2018 // Climbs from fourth to second in the points standings, tied with teammate Alexander Rossi
