Andretti INDYCAR Grand Prix of Alabama Race Report


Barber Race Notes

Race Results


Started: P15

Standings: 1st (101pts)

“Overall, it was a solid day from where we started. We always want more, but in order to do that we need to qualify a little bit better. I still think we had an opportunity to show what we’re capable of considering the circumstances, and we were able to move up quite a bit. The Gainbridge Honda was fast today, we just had to pass a lot of cars to get up there and show our skills.”


Started: P9

Standings: 7th (67pts)

“We finished up at Barber with my third top 10 of the season, although I feel like we could have done a variety of things to move a little higher up there. Although, I’m still happy with the performance of the car and we definitely made strides throughout the weekend. So we’ll take it and roll into the Indy GP with a fresh start. It’s a track that I feel really confident on, so I’m looking forward to getting out to our home race in Indianapolis.”


Started: P18

Standings: 14th (49pts)

“The race started extremely well. I was overtaking a lot of cars, and the Delaware Life Honda felt the best it’s been all weekend. Then we started settling in and there was a lot of portions throughout the race where things just didn’t fall our way and we had to try our best to make the right decisions given the situation. It’s a shame because the No. 28 car felt really strong out there, so it was just a lot of work for little reward. There’s still quite a bit of positives to bring from the race pace we had, but hopefully we can turn that into better results at the next one.”

“Hopefully the action from today made an exciting race for the fans. For our cars, it’s super unfortunate for Marcus that he got punted off track because he had a good race going, and Kyle and Colton were both executing the strategy they were given. We just needed to be quicker today, but we executed what we had. I can say that I’m happy that we’re leaving Barber with a Championship lead for Colton.”
