Rev Group Grand Prix at Road America

“Kind of story of our year: I don’t think the result was representative of the pace we had. We had a good start, got some guys, made up another spot or two during the first pit sequence… We were really just kind of running lap for lap with Josef [Newgarden] and Will [Power] there, maintaining the gap, looking after fuel and tires. On that last sequence, we decided to pit one lap early, and ultimately that let Colton [Herta] and Graham [Rahal] get ahead of us, which really just sort of compromised our race from there. When Colton’s tires went off, he made a mistake that ended up costing me two spots. Kind of bad luck, kind of wrong place wrong time, but the car was good and the Arrow guys were awesome in the pits. It’s a shame to leave here without the top five we deserved, but we’ll keep our heads down and keep pushing.”

“I had a good start, got past a car or two. But, then down into Turn 5, there were some cars ahead that got together and spun, and I had to avoid them and go wide which lost me quite a few positions. I had to work my way back into the race, and I was getting through the field quite nicely; the Arrow car was feeling really good. I tried a move that was a bit too optimistic maybe, I just tried a bit too hard and went wide in Turn 5 which put us at the back again and lost touch with the group, so we lost a lot of race time there. We had a lot of catching up to do, and I was hoping for a safety car to help put us back in contention to fight because I felt the car was competitive, but there were no cautions today. It was all about trying to make up as much positions as possible and 13th isn’t terrible, but I think there was more pace in the car than what we could show today. We’ll take the positives and move on to the next one.”

“While I was buzzing with excitement to get here, the weekend didn’t go as we had hoped. We did have a nice recovery during the race to make up positions from where we had started. We had to save fuel most of the race or we would have found some more speed. We are taking positives out of this race weekend. Everyone at Meyer Shank Racing with Arrow SPM is doing a great job and a big thank you to AutoNation and SiriusXM. We move on to Mid-Ohio, the home race for MSR, where we hope to deliver a better result.”
