What happened out there in practice?

“Well I was just a little bit free and I moved up a little bit in (turns) three and four to try to keep the lap time in it and it started getting away from me some and eventually just had to kind of give up on it. It’s already getting too free and there was kind of no coming back. So just gave up, spun out and you know after that luckily we didn’t really catch the grass too bad and didn’t get too much damage. We’ll get if fixed up and get back out for second practice.”


What’s the relief factor of seeing your team working on this car and not having to go to a backup.

“You never want to roll a backup out, so it’s nice to have the same car. Fortunately, we have minimal damage, a little bit of side skirt work, so we’ll get it back going. I think it’s a fast car really, we just got to get it tuned up a little bit and we’ll be just fine.”
