IN CK’S WORDS
“Three Chip Ganassi Racing cars in the top-10 is a solid day. We knew coming in after the open test in February that we’d have some challenges for the race weekend. But overall the Honda engine ran great, and we were able to get good mileage when we needed to. It was an interesting race with the way it developed with the long yellow at the start and then the yellow in the middle. I lost a spot or two at that second restart; the tires weren’t quite there. But overall I’m really proud of the way the Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing crew rallied this week. We had a few challenges coming into the weekend and we knew dealing with the weather conditions would be tough, especially with just the one practice session. We had great stops by the team in pit lane and really nice calls from the timing stand. I’m happy with the 8th place result tonight. We’ll take those points and move on to the month of May in Indy.”

IN CK’S WORDS
“The conditions were really different from this afternoon. The wind slowed down and the ambient really changed from earlier. I think we were a little conservative with how we took the car to qualifying, but I feel really good about the Novo Nordisk car in race trim. I’m confident we’ll have a good car for tomorrow night and I’m looking forward to 250 laps of good racing.”
