RHR Places P2 in Series Finale at Sonoma

04CJ2446“It was a good finish to the season, that’s for sure. We won two of the last four races – we finished second today, so it’s been a really good streak. Today we jumped a few spots in the championship… we finished sixth which is crazy coming from 11th in the championship this morning. It’s been a great run and it’s great that it ended on a high note like this headed into a busy off season.”

Another season of the Verizon IndyCar Series is in the books as the sun sets over Sonoma Raceway. Coming off his 16th career win at Pocono Raceway last weekend, Ryan Hunter-Reay started today’s race from the third position and remained a contender leading two laps before bringing the DHL Honda home second — his second consecutive second-place finish at Sonoma Raceway. Marco Andretti started today’s 85-lap race from the eighth position and was a strong contender until front nose damage cost the American precious time on track. He led four laps and recorded an 11th-place finish. Behind the wheel of the No. 25 car, honoring the late Justin Wilson, Oriol Servia rolled off from the 12th position today. Battling with the leaders, the Spaniard ran as high as third before taking the twin checkers in 12th. Carlos Muñoz started from the 12th position today and went off strategy early in the race. Late in the race Muñoz was spun in Turn 7, causing the No. 26 machine to get caught up on track curbing bringing out a yellow flag. He recorded a 22nd-place finish.
