"What They're Saying" from Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio Practice "The Hawk Performance Chevy was pretty quick today. It was not as good at the test so we made some changes to the car and as a result, we gained on those changes a lot during practice. This is a tough racetrack and so the more changes we make, the better we can adjust here. Hopefully, we'll get some dry weather tomorrow for qualifying. Either way, we'll be ready."
JPM Says: "Yeah, it's terrible. On Friday, I made a mistake and went into the wall so we got behind. In the morning yesterday we had a misfire with the engine and didn't do any laps before qualifying. We didn't qualify as well as we could. We knew we had a good race car though. The DeVilbiss Chevy was really good. I passed a lot of people and had a lot of fun. I thought I had an easy podium if not more. We missed a pit call by about two seconds. I started at the back. I was running with the No. 28 (Ryan Hunter-Reay) there late and went to turn with him, but the No. 41 (Jack Hawksworth) was in the wall and there was nowhere to go. It seems like every weekend there is something, and it's getting really old really fast."
“It’s just how this year has gone. What are you going to do? The DeVilbiss Chevrolet was fast. I think we passed more people than anybody and had a great time. It really was a lot of fun. I was in a really great position to get a good finish again and the caution came out and caught us. Then we had a misfire followed by the accident. It’s just how 2016 has gone for us.”
