I can’t complain about the preparation of the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet from the team, the mechanical issue was just out of their control. All year the team has done an incredible job, even today our pit stops were on point. It was a hard day out there today. I think we’re still missing something in the grip and platform window, but now we at least have a year’s worth of data to learn from and be even better next season. A huge thanks to the whole Carlin team, Novo Nordisk, and everyone who supported us this season."

The race will be a very different beast, considering the track grip and tire degradation. With 85 laps, trying to make the fuel mileage for the whole race will be quite interesting. The engineers will figure out what we need for the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet car's setup tomorrow and we'll go racing."

The weather is supposed to be a little bit cooler tomorrow, maybe more like it was this morning, which bodes well for us after being a little more competitive in the first practice. We’ll look at all the data and be ready to go for practice tomorrow morning and figure out what we need to do on the alternates tomorrow afternoon." VIEWS IMG_1864

Going into this season, there were so many unknowns. But I knew Carlin had the right people with the right work ethic who would do everything possible to make every weekend a success. Sometimes success looked like a top-five finish, and sometimes it was just evaluating and learning after a tough race. But as we go into the finale at Sonoma Raceway, I know this entire team has grown leaps and bounds since our first laps in St. Pete. I’m looking forward to finishing out the season on a strong note for the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet team."

    Circuit of the Americas joins 17-race schedule for 2019

    Via IndyCar.com INDYCAR released its 2019 schedule today featuring 17 events, a newly announced race and a new event finale. All the action will be showcased in INDYCAR's first full season with NBC Sports Group. Circuit of the Americas (COTA), the permanent road course in Austin, Texas, will make its debut on the IndyCar Series schedule on Sunday, March 24. It will be the second race of the 2019 season. "COTA is one of the finest motorsports facilities in the world and Austin is a happening city. This a natural fit for the IndyCar Series," said Mark Miles, president and CEO of Hulman & Co., which owns INDYCAR and Indianapolis Motor Speedway. "Indy car racing has a large and passionate fan base in Texas with a hunger to attend more races. This added date will allow us to deliver both oval and road course events to the state in a single season." INDYCAR recently announced a four-year agreement with Texas Motor Speedway, which has hosted 30 Indy car races since 1997. The 2019 race on the Fort Worth superspeedway will be Saturday, June 8 under the lights. Circuit of the Americas founder and chairman Bobby Epstein said the track's fan base has been excited to see INDYCAR race at COTA "from Year 1." The permanent road course opened in 2011. At more than 3 miles, COTA will be the second-longest circuit on the 2019 INDYCAR schedule, behind only Road America (4.048 miles). "It's going to be spectacular," Epstein said. "Our entire team at COTA is excited to welcome the teams, drivers and visitors to our great city, and we know Austin will give them a warm welcome." For the ninth consecutive year, the IndyCar Series season will kick off in St. Petersburg, Florida, on Sunday, March 10. The 1.8-mile temporary street circuit in the Gulf Coast city includes a runway of Albert Whitted Airport. St. Petersburg first hosted Indy cars in 2003 and has continuously since 2005, providing the perfect warm-weather backdrop to usher in the new season. INDYCAR's 2019 season concludes Sunday, Sept. 22 with the championship race at the legendary WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, which has hosted 22 previous Indy car races, the most recent in 2004. The permanent road course near Monterey, California, was last the site for an Indy car season finale in 1996. The centerpiece of the 2019 schedule again includes two races at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where the INDYCAR Grand Prix will be held for the sixth time on the road course, on Saturday, May 11. The 103rd Running of the Indianapolis 500 on the historic 2.5-mile oval will take place Sunday, May 26. A focal point for INDYCAR has been maintaining date equity with racetracks. The 2019 IndyCar Series schedule accomplishes that with a pair of minor exceptions for good reason:

    • Barber Motorsports Park's event shifts two weeks forward to Sunday, April 7. That early April date was the slot that the scenic permanent road course in Birmingham, Alabama, held on the schedule for the first four years of its nine-year run to date;
    • Iowa Speedway returns to a night race at the overwhelming request of fans on Saturday, July 20. It moves back on the calendar by two weeks. Next year's IndyCar Series race will be the 13th on the bullring oval in Newton, Iowa.
    Proof of INDYCAR's track diversity lies in the 2019 schedule that features races on seven permanent road courses, five temporary street circuits and five ovals. Other schedule highlights include:
    • The Grand Prix of Long Beach returning for the 36th consecutive year (Sunday, April 14). Outside of the Indianapolis 500, the event on the iconic Southern California street circuit is the longest running in the sport;
    • Detroit is the site of the season's only doubleheader race weekend (Saturday-Sunday, June 1-2). It will be the seventh time that two Indy car races will be contested on the same weekend on the temporary street course;
    • The streets of Toronto, another popular staple event, returning to the schedule (Sunday, July 14). The urban street circuit in the cosmopolitan Canadian city has been home to 34 previous Indy car races dating to 1986;
    • Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Illinois, returning for another late-summer race under the lights (Saturday, Aug. 24). Officials at the 1.25-mile oval recently staged a second straight impressive event in the sports-hungry St. Louis market.
    "INDYCAR has worked to deliver a consistency and cadence to the schedule and that is reflected again in 2019," Miles said. "We've added races at a pair of tracks that know how to put on fantastic events, while returning to tracks where INDYCAR has longstanding relationships on familiar race dates. "The diversity of next year's schedule will continue to make what we believe is the most challenging and competitive championship in motorsports." Nearly half of the 2019 races will air on network television as part of a previously announced multiyear media rights deal with NBC Sports Group that will significantly increase INDYCAR exposure. Broadcast times will be confirmed later, but eight races, including the Indianapolis 500, will air on NBC. Nine races will be on NBCSN, with all track activity and additional exclusive content available on NBC Sports Gold, the direct-to-consumer product that will bring subscribers closer to INDYCAR racing than ever before. The complete 2019 IndyCar Series schedule is as follows: Date: Track March 10: Streets of St. Petersburg, Florida March 24: Circuit of the Americas, Austin, Texas April 7: Barber Motorsports Park, Birmingham, Alabama April 14: Streets of Long Beach, California May 11: INDYCAR Grand Prix, Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course May 26: 103rd Indianapolis 500, Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval June 1: Streets of Detroit, Race 1, Detroit, Michigan June 2: Streets of Detroit, Race 2, Detroit, Michigan June 8: Texas Motor Speedway, Fort Worth, Texas* June 23: Road America, Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin July 14: Streets of Toronto, Canada July 20: Iowa Speedway, Newton, Iowa* July 28: Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Lexington, Ohio Aug. 18: Pocono Raceway, Long Pond, Pennsylvania Aug. 24: Gateway Motorsports Park, Madison, Illinois* Sept. 1: Portland International Raceway, Portland, Oregon Sept. 22: WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, Salinas, California (*-night race) (Schedule subject to change)

I’m proud of these guys, they just stayed with it all day. They worked the fuel strategy, gave me the fuel numbers and lap times that I needed, and we were able to get it with the car. We made a pretty significant change to the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet overnight and it really helped our pace throughout the race. I just can’t stress how proud I am of these guys. Yesterday was pretty frustrating and disheartening, but they didn’t let it slow them down today. We had great pit stops and a great strategy, so all I really had to do was drive it into the top 10."

We made some big strides forward yesterday with the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet from the test we did here on Thursday, and even this morning I was still feeling pretty good with where we were. It just didn’t go our way out there. I’m still confident in our race pace and I think with a little bit of strategy we could still come out of Portland with a good result."

We worked through a lot on yesterday’s test day and we were able to dig through so much data to come up with a better starting point this morning. Do we still have room to improve? Absolutely, but at the same time we have a solid direction now and we have a really good idea of where we need to go to get stronger throughout the rest of the weekend."

We fought the balance and when I was pushing on an out lap, I tagged the wall and bent a toe link. The guys had never done a hot change like that during a race in the pits, but they made the repair and sent me back out with a car that was still just as rock solid as it’d been before. We’ve got a lot to learn not just with pace, but also with what we can do in traffic and how to be a little bit more competitive. I think the highlight for the night for us as a team is how the guys did in the pits. We’ll learn from tonight, like we always do, and be better next time."

The No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet had a strong test here a few weeks back, and I’m really optimistic having that data and experience will pay off this weekend.

I really hope he’s okay and recovers quickly, because he’s been a huge addition to the series this year. Overall, the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet just fought all day. The guys did a great job on pit lane and they got me two positions on that last stop. I’m really proud of the effort the whole team has put in this weekend, especially with only running one hour worth of practice and going straight into qualifying and 500 miles with tough weather conditions. They gave me a car that was really solid to start with, and we were able to bring home another top-10 for the team. We had a really good test at Gateway a few weeks ago, so I’m excited to get back out there next weekend and hopefully bring home another good result."

Overall the balance was great and the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet has been rock solid since we unloaded, so I feel good about the Carlin team heading into tomorrow. If we get the opportunity to practice this afternoon, we’ll be even better. We ran pretty well in Indy, as well as in Texas with a top-10 finish that we were pretty happy with, so I think we’ll be pretty quick tomorrow.

Luckily we have 500 miles to look forward to this Sunday at Pocono Raceway. It definitely lives up to its nickname—it can be tricky, but I’ve also had a lot of great moments here. It will be a challenge coming into the race without any testing but I have full confidence the No. 23 Chevrolet will be fast right out of the box. And it's always great being down the street from Novo Nordisk's U.S. headquarters, with so much support at the home office and here at the track. I know the entire Carlin team is ready to make the most of these last four races of the Verizon IndyCar Series season."

The track conditions meant that it was going to be pretty slippery and the cars were going to be quite a handful. We really struggled in that first stint and I just wasn’t able to get the lap time out of the No. 23 car. The guys did a great job in pit lane, and we flipped up the strategy on the last stint when we went with the Firestone alternate tires which helped us out a lot. We’ll go back to the drawing board and evaluate what we did here and hopefully be able to learn from it."

It’s unfortunate for us, because we were just a couple of tenths off from advancing into the second round. I will say that testing here last week was a huge asset for us, because had we not done that we would have been so much further off after how choppy yesterday’s sessions were with all the reds and yellows. Again I’m really happy for the No. 59 crew – it just shows the progress that Carlin has been making and how we’re continuing to step up each and every time we get to the race track."

It’s one of my favorite tracks, of course with it being the home of my first IndyCar win, but it’s also the fan support and laid-back atmosphere that makes it special. The top-five finish at Toronto was a testament to the entire Carlin team’s hard work, and I know we’ll be carrying that through to the final five races of the IndyCar season."

  • Definitely struggled with grip during qualifying today. Tomorrow could be a different beast, with fuel mileage and tire degradation to consider. We'll see what we can do overnight to go fast at the green flag. http://bit.ly/2xdFHFY 📸: LAT Images
