Phoenix Grand Prix Race Report

“It’s very frustrating. I couldn’t do anything with the car all day. I love short ovals and it’s just really frustrating. The DHL car had a great start – we got by a bunch of guys and then we got a puncture, or whatever. It’s just the way it’s been. Dixon was coming up behind me there, stuck his nose in – I was afraid I’d turn across, and I should’ve just turned across, anyway I got out into the grey and two guys got by me. Then I got down into Turn 1 and the car wouldn’t turn at all. I don’t know. It was a really wild ride in that thing today, it was way too complicated behind the steering wheel.”

The sun has set on 250 laps of twilight racing at Phoenix International Raceway as Round 4 of Verizon IndyCar Series competition comes to a close. The day ended early for all four Andretti drivers, when contact forced each to retire before the checkers.

  • Started 12 // Finished 13
  • Championship: Ninth (82 pts)
  • Picked off three cars on the first restart and ran as high as eighth before retiring early due to contact

The series next heads to home ground as the legendary Month of May steps into full swing. Andretti Autosport will next take to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the INDYCAR Grand Prix followed by the 101st Indianapolis 500-Mile Race.
