Texas Motor Speedway

“We were coming up on some lapped cars, and I tried to use those lapped cars to pick on [Alexander] Rossi. We got a good run on the outside, but I just got a little bit high and got into the grey. The car pushed to the outside and then just snapped on me, tagged the right rear into the wall and just went around. My fault. I was trying to make moves at the end of the race and get a good result for the No. 5 Arrow guys, they really deserved it. We’ve had just garbage luck this year. The car was good, strategy was good, Arrow guys were good in the pits, just my mistake.”

“Starting from 14th today was not the best starting position. I was trying to be patient out there and just sort of focusing on each car in front of us, one after the other, and moving our way up through the field. I think we did a good job there. The Arrow car was very consistent throughout the whole race and that made me feel confident. The Arrow guys had great pit stops and we had a good strategy. We had some bad luck with the yellow flags at the end, but fortunately we had some fuel there to push to the end. I’m still super happy and proud of P7 at my first Texas Motor Speedway race. My first goal coming into the weekend was to finish the race. My second goal was to get a top 10, so to be seventh is a great result.”
