    Carlin continues showing systematic growth in debut season

    Via IndyCar.com Carlin continued its methodical growth in the Verizon IndyCar Series with another promising showing the DXC Technology 600 at Texas Motor Speedway. Charlie Kimball led the first-year squad with a 10th-place finish, while teammate Max Chilton came home 12th on Saturday night. The outing comes a week after a strong showing for both in the second race of the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix doubleheader, where Kimball and Chilton finished eighth and 11th, respectively. Britain-based Carlin has achieved success worldwide in open-wheel racing, primarily in junior formulas. Team owner Trevor Carlin started an Indy Lights program in 2015 with an eye toward advancing to the Verizon IndyCar Series. By design, the team has taken a disciplined approach in its rookie season. The back-to-back solid efforts provide evidence of that growth and optimism for more to come. The results at Texas Motor Speedway were especially rewarding considering neither driver had finished better than 17th place in either of the two previous oval races this season.

    SATURDAY, JUNE 9 RESULTS Race: P10 RACE STATS Finishing position: 10th Starting position: 12th Pit stops: 5 Average speed: 176.165 mph Cautions: 3 for 29 laps total Lead changes: 9 among 7 drivers Championship standing: 17th DEBRIEF "Tonight was tough, with the tires degrading and the car sliding around more and more as the stint went on. The nice thing about the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet, actually both Carlin cars, is that they were stable all race. I was confident in what the car was going to be able to do. That really comes down to the preparation that the team has put into making sure that every time I roll out of pit lane they’ve given me the absolute best car that they can. It feels like these top-10 finishes are starting to be a habit and we’ll just keep moving forward from here." VIEWS Click here for more photos, courtesy of LAT Photo USA. FRIDAY, JUNE 8 RESULTS Practice 1: P13, 217.58 mph Qualifying: P12, 218.145 mph Practice 2: P15, 217.625 mph DEBRIEF "I’m pretty confident and happy with that qualifying run from the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet. We had a couple of issues on our qualifying sims this morning in practice, just with traffic and things like that, but overall I’m just really proud of the Carlin guys. We unloaded here at Texas with a very stable car and I’ve got to say that with how intimidating this place can be for both drivers and teams alike, that’s pretty impressive. It’s going to be a long race tomorrow night – it’s going to be hot and slippery. I honestly think that whoever takes care of their tires the longest during the race will end up the best."

    SUNDAY, JUNE 3 RESULTS Qualifying 2: P21, 1:39.3597 Race 2: P8 RACE RESULTS Finishing position: 8th Starting position: 21st Pit stops: 2 Average speed: 104.299 mph Cautions: 1 for 3 laps Lead changes: 6 among 3 drivers Championship standing: 19th DEBRIEF "I’m really proud of the resiliency of this Carlin team. We didn’t get the job done all that well this morning in qualifying, but we had a nice clean race, good solid pit stops, and a really good strategy. It felt like I raced pretty cleanly and we had good pace in clean air which helped us get good mileage when we needed to. I’m just so happy for the 23 car guys for getting a top-eight finish today. With Max coming home in the top 11 today, hopefully we can get both of us into the top 10 in Texas next weekend." VIEWS Click here for more photos, courtesy of LAT Photo USA. SATURDAY, JUNE 2 RESULTS Qualifying 1: P22, 1:16.4182 Race 1: P19 RACE STATS Finishing position: 19th Starting position: 22nd Pit stops: 3 Average speed: 98.721 mph Cautions: 2 for 10 laps total Lead changes: 6 among 4 drivers Championship standing: 20th DEBRIEF "I’m really proud of the effort by the Carlin boys today. The No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet was good, we had great pit stops, and we made great fuel mileage. I got caught out on contact with a rookie. Honestly that one was on me, because I expected him to be a little more consistent than he was. With a rookie, I should’ve given him more benefit of a doubt. I feel badly for the team on that front, but the good thing about the Dual in Detroit is that we get to come back and try again tomorrow. We’ll try and qualify a little higher up, so we don’t have to fight quite as hard in the back to get back up front."

FRIDAY, JUNE 1 RESULTS Practice 1: P16, 1:19.0906 Practice 2: P20, 1:17.7271 DEBRIEF "It was kind of a scattered session; every time we were getting ready to do a quick lap, it went red, yellow or we hit traffic. I know there's more in the No. 23 car. We definitely found a couple of things in the setup that were much improved toward the end of that second session. I think we did our fastest lap time on a whole lot of fuel and used tires. Overall there's still more to come; we're not happy with 20th, but the Carlin team has done a great job preparing for Detroit. We rolled off the truck well, we'll continue to make improvements and will be ready for qualifying in the morning."

Between weather, the track conditions and the occasional wildlife on track, Belle Isle always throws a curveball at us. I’ll be working hard to adapt quickly and get a good result for the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet Carlin team."

To come out and qualify two cars in the top 20 and finish the race with two cars in one piece in the top 22 in their first Indianapolis 500 is impressive. I’m just really proud of these guys; everyone really did a great job all month. I’m excited to come back next year with everything we learned this year both in qualifying and in the race. We will definitely do some things differently but that’s the thing about the first time, you learn so much and we’ll just keep moving forward from here. We’re looking forward to another 100 points up for grab next weekend in Detroit." VIEWS Click here for more photos. FRIDAY, MAY 25 RESULTS Practice 9: 224.712 mph DEBRIEF "It was a ready good final practice. The hour on Carb Day is all about checking the boxes and making sure we are ready to go for Sunday. Reliability in the car has been rock solid all month. That didn't change today. The speed is really good in the car. If we get clean air and get out front, we're going to be pretty solid. The guys did a lot of pit stop practice this week and we're pretty happy with that. Overall, we tuned on it and right at the end of the session when the track was the hottest and probably the slickest, we felt like we had the best car of the week. That's the right time to peak heading into the race on Sunday. Excited to show off what this Carlin team has done this whole month of May and this year so far. Everyone from Novo Nordisk to Chevy and Firestone are great partners. It's been a great month. We've done an incredible job as a team and it's been fun to watch this team enjoy the Indy 500 experience. I can't wait to see their faces on race day." VIEWS IMG_1515 Click here for more photos. MONDAY, MAY 21 RESULTS Practice 8: P4, 224.582 mph No-tow: P3, 220.463 mph DEBRIEF "We got through a lot of really good work today on our race car. I think we have the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet in a really good position in race trim. We seem to be fast on our own and can run pretty well in traffic. We worked a lot on fuel mileage and making sure we are where we want to be with that. I know Team Chevy brought good horsepower and good fuel mileage for next weekend, so we’ll clean up a few little items to get ready for Carb Day and make sure we’re happy with what we’ve got to go race 500 miles." VIEWS IMG_1505 Click here for more photos. SUNDAY, MAY 20 RESULTS Qualifying: P15, 226.657 mph (4-lap average) DEBRIEF "All week we've been trying to be as methodical as possible and just making sure we were prepared for the stress and the pressure of yesterday. Having gone through the qualifying process yesterday we doubled our experience for today. We were just trying to maximize and optimize what we had and not take any big risks – really just trying to be smart. The No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet moved around more than I was expecting, but nothing particularly uncomfortable on that run. I'm just so proud of these Carlin guys and where they started before the winter to where they are now with two cars in the 102nd Running of the Indianapolis 500 Mile race – just a huge credit to them."

SATURDAY, MAY 19 RESULTS Qualifying: P25, 225.752 mph (4-lap average) DEBRIEF "I’m just so proud of the whole team for how much work they’ve put into this INDYCAR program and especially into making sure that both Carlin cars qualified for next Sunday. You know, we stopped a little early during practice yesterday and the conditions today were significantly different, so we were a bit worried about making sure we adjusted to those factors. I think we were hoping to get a bit more speed out of the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet, but we’re all just over the moon that we made it into the show. We definitely have some work to do tonight after we comb through some data from this afternoon and hopefully we’ll have a shot at moving up even further tomorrow."

The Carlin boys have done an incredible job preparing for this week and really the whole month. They haven’t put a foot wrong with the car and we’ve been able to make progress all week each and every time we go on track. I have a lot of confidence about where we are heading into this qualifying weekend. I’m excited for what tomorrow and Sunday are going to bring for the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet."

We were laser-focused today on qualifying setup and making sure that we were prepared for Saturday and Sunday, in case the weather throws off practice tomorrow. We focused a little on race setup yesterday, but we’ve made single car pace our priority for the majority of the week. Hopefully the weather is okay tomorrow and we can see what we really have for qualifying in terms of pace for the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet."

This place is just such a challenge because you don’t always know where you are, relative to others speed-wise. The big numbers come from big tows. But at the same time, we were pretty happy with our pace and speed out on our own. Going into the next couple of days, on Friday we'll have an eye toward Saturday, with the high booster level and qualifying spec. Tomorrow afternoon we’ll work on that. This afternoon, we did some race stuff. We have some ground to cover and could make some progress there, but I know that we’ve learned a lot. We’ll apply it tomorrow morning and start looking looking at the weekend’s setup in the afternoon."

We made some really good progress with the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet and I have a lot of confidence going into the rest of the week. We still have a long laundry list of test items to work through, but we seem to be addressing the big concerns. Now we’ll start focusing on the smaller things and start trying to find some lap time."

    Drivers build wagons and goodwill at Riley Hospital for Children party

    Via IndyCar.com Some moments are bigger than others. Less than an hour after climbing out of their cars from Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil practice on Tuesday, 10 Verizon IndyCar Series drivers were at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health for the annual Indy 500 Party that thrills the young patients and their families. The event took place at Riley’s Child Life Zone in the hospital courtyard, complete with a “racetrack” wrapped around an infield area full of various games. The children took full advantage of the opportunity to play and meet with the drivers, who enjoyed the activities just as much. To read more, please click here.

We worked our way up and the guys were awesome in pit lane. We had really good stops all three stops and we had the strategy right. We really improved the car from yesterday to today.

I think the entire Carlin team has been rolling with some momentum the past few weeks, from a strong finish for the 23 team in Long Beach to close qualifying lap times in Barber.

The stewards reviewed it and decided that no action would be taken, which I vehemently disagree with. Yeah, visibility was tough out there, but it was tough for everyone. I didn’t run into anyone and no one else ran into me, except for the 10 car. I don’t know what the stewards were looking at, but I’m going to have a discussion with them after the race. I’m just disappointed because the Carlin guys know how to run in the wet and they gave me a great car. We were moving up the field a few spots and with the Marco spin we were able to elevate another spot. We were just knocking on the door of making it into the top 10 and coming out of here in these conditions with a top-10 result heading into May would’ve been really good for the team." SUNDAY, APRIL 22 INDYCAR has suspended the 2018 Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama due to heavy rain and will continue the race from lap 23 on Monday, April 23 at 11 a.m. Central. Click here to learn more. Note: On lap 12, the No. 23 car spun on track after contact by the No. 10 car. Due to damage sustained during the contact, the team was forced to retire from the race and will not be permitted to continue on Monday. The No. 23 will record a 23rd place result at Barber Motorsports Park. SATURDAY, APRIL 21 RESULTS Practice 3: P13, 1:08.1816 Qualifying: P14, 1:08.5494 DEBRIEF "It’s a little frustrating not to make the top 12, but honestly the progress we’ve made since St. Pete and even in Long Beach just on qualifying is nothing to scoff at. I’m really proud of this team – they keep making progress. I think we have a solid baseline to go off of moving forward. Now we just need to optimize for each race track and figure out to how to get into the top 12 and ultimately into the Firestone Fast 6."

FRIDAY, APRIL 20 RESULTS Practice 1: P12, 1:08.5216 Practice 2: P19, 1:08.7466 DEBRIEF "We made a change during the second session that wasn't as good as we'd hoped. When those red flags fell, we made sure we were working through our race program to be ready for Sunday. With no warmup session on race day morning, this was our last real race-running opportunity, so we needed to make sure we worked on the car for race setup as well as maximizing what we were getting out of the new Firestone alternate tires for qualifying. With that in mind, we didn't really optimize the car, quite frankly. The No. 59 car looked really good so as a team it feels good to know there's more speed in the Carlin cars." VIEWS IMG_1396

  • Definitely a tough race at Texas Motor Speedway last night, trying to manage tires and keep the car from sliding as each stint went on. But both Carlin cars were stable all night--that comes down to the prep the team does to give us the best cars they can from lap one. Great to roll on with another top-10! 📸: LAT Images

  • The No. 23 Carlin team unloaded here at Texas Motor Speedway with a very stable car, despite how intimidating this place can be for both drivers and teams alike. Happy with our qualifying efforts... we'll be able to make some moves from there. It’s going to be a long race tomorrow night! 📸: IndyCar Series
