    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 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."

FRIDAY, MAY 18 RESULTS Practice 5: P18, 228.524 mph No-tow: P16, 227.406 mph DEBRIEF "Today was about being smart and methodical as we trimmed the car out to qualifying spec with the higher boost level for Fast Friday. 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."

THURSDAY, MAY 17 RESULTS Practice 4: P21, 223.324 mph No-tow: P3, 223.208 mph DEBRIEF "It was a good day for the team. 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." VIEWS [caption id="attachment_4787" align="aligncenter" width="626"]Photo courtesy of LAT Photo USA Photo courtesy of LAT Photo USA[/caption] WEDNESDAY, MAY 16 RESULTS Practice 3: P5, 225.887 mph No-tow: P6, 221.705 mph DEBRIEF "Another solid day in the No. 23 at the Speedway. 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 must’ve hit a piece of debris and we ended up cutting the left rear tire on that last stint, so we didn’t get the opportunity to race for the top 10. 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. It’s disappointing not to get the result, but the performance doesn’t show how good the team and the No. 23 car was today. I’m ready to move on and we’ll take any extra we can get for the next few weekends.” VIEWS [caption id="attachment_4764" align="aligncenter" width="626"] Photo courtesy of LAT Photo USA[/caption] Click here for more photos, courtesy of LAT Photo USA and Spacesuit Media.

I was struggling with finding grip and balance, and we just couldn’t get the lap times that we needed out of the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet to move onto the second round of qualifying. We definitely have some work to do tonight to get ready for the morning warm-up and green flag, but we know what we need to do to get to where we need to be."

I’ve had three fifth-place finishes and strong qualifying sessions here for the INDYCAR Grand Prix, and I hope to move up to the podium this weekend for Carlin’s debut. 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

    Thanking firefighter, finishing 10th, makes Kimball's day at Long Beach

    Via IndyCar.com Charlie Kimball had a memorable day at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach – on and off the racetrack. In addition to scoring Carlin’s first top-10 finish in just its third start in the Verizon IndyCar Series, the 33-year-old Californian welcomed a firefighter who battled the Thomas Fire that damaged much of Ventura County in suburban Los Angeles, including much of the Kimball family’s avocado ranch, in December. Mike Fuller, who works at Station 54 in Ventura County, was one of 8,500 firefighters who combated California’s largest wildfire in history, which spread over 283,000 acres. An avid racing fan who had attended previous Long Beach races, Fuller brought nephews Jace, 3, and Harrison, 11, to Long Beach on Sunday. The chance to meet Kimball and the AMR INDYCAR Safety Team at the Carlin transporter before the race made for a one-of-a-kind experience. To read more, please click here.

I’ve had some success there in the past, and we have a little data from the open test last month to get us up to speed when the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet rolls out for practice one. Barber is unique with its elevation and technical demands, and it really requires some patience to make your moves at the right time and place. Last weekend’s top-10 was a big morale-booster for everyone on the Carlin team, myself included. I think if we can carry this momentum throughout the weekend and make some progress in qualifying, we can definitely put ourselves in a good spot at the checkered flag on Sunday."

We just keep making progress and it’s nice to finally be able to have a result to show for it. It was awesome to see how hard the team worked to put together a good race car, and I can honestly say that the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet was the best car I’d had around here. We got a little lucky with yellows, but we’ll take some luck with a new team building our foundation in INDYCAR. A lot of credit to the guys though – they’ve worked so hard since October to make this happen. A top-10 finish is a start, and hopefully moving forward we can qualify better so we don’t have to work so hard to get back into the top-10."

I felt really good about the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet after this morning’s session, but we just struggled to get any good lap times out of the tires and find any grip. We’ll go back and figure out what it needs for the race and dial up the strategy. There’s always something going on around here as far as yellows, strategies, and fuel, so I’m optimistic. Max did a really nice job in qualifying, so we’ll go back and compare our data to see where we need to be for tomorrow."

Max was pretty good this morning, so we went more his direction with the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet. We had a couple of issues in the first practice, but we got those cleaned up for the second practice and introduced a few new issues in the second practice that we’ll need to fix overnight. We had a yellow flag on what was going to be my best lap early in the second session. We can learn from what we did today and get everything ready to go for qualifying tomorrow. I think the conditions tomorrow are going to be pretty similar to today and then cooler on race day, so we’ll just have to adjust best as we can and move forward from there."

  • I think we have the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Carlin Team Chevy car in a really good position in race trim. We've got some time on Carb Day to clean up a few little things, then we'll be ready for 500 miles at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway next Sunday! http://bit.ly/2IP8msQ 📸: IndyCar Series

  • So proud of this entire Carlin team... First #Indy500 qualifications and they put both Max Chilton and I in the big show. We were hoping to get a bit more speed out of the No. 23, but we'll do some work tonight to make it better for tomorrow's qual run to set our starting position. http://bit.ly/2IP8msQ 📸: LAT Images
