DEBRIEF
“It’s too bad we had a mechanical problem today. 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.”

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 15
RESULTS
Practice 3: P13, 1:18.787
Qualifying: P24, 1:18.8495

DEBRIEF
“We really struggled with grip during qualifying on the Firestone alternates, so we’ll evaluate that for tomorrow. 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.”

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14
RESULTS
Practice 1: P18, 1:18.9638
Practice 2: P22, 1:19.0498

DEBRIEF
“Obviously the finishing position isn’t what we want from today, but at the same time we learned a lot about what the No. 23 Novo Nordisk Chevrolet needs on the Firestone alternates, which will matter in qualifying tomorrow. 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.”
