Rainguard Water Sealers 600 Race Report

“Yeah, I don’t know what I need to do here to get things right, but we had a good car early on then came in and made a down force adjustment and then I completely missed the compensation on the front wing and then I went straight to the back. We spent the rest of the night trying to claw back, just missing the whole down force front grip equation. We started getting going there, then this deal happened. There were guys making too many moves out there late into the corner, I will save my opinion for after I look at it. I came down, there were cars spinning and sparks everywhere. I went for the apron, I kind of high-sided a bit, and I was just a passenger from there. There was no where to go. You can’t jump all over the brakes from these cars once you are doing 220mph into the corner, there’s not a whole lot of places to go.”

The Rainguard 600 at Texas Motor Speedway proved to be a wild night in the west as the field of 22 was whittled down to nine cars running at the finish, and just six of those competitors on the lead lap. A nine-car incident on Lap 151 retired six cars from competition, including the No. 28 of Ryan Hunter-Reay. All drivers involved were checked, cleared and released from the medical center.
