  • It was really an incredible effort. We had a fueling issue with the car after warm up. Unfortunately that caused us to miss the recon lap. The penalty for that is to start from pit lane plus a drive-thru penalty. We had a lot to make up today. I tip my hat to the entire team and Colin. It was a real team effort and amazing result.

  • I knew we were going to have to play catch up all day after the warm up issue, so I wasn’t surprised by our strategy. It was a challenge to save fuel while also needing to pass so many cars, make up the gaps and get through the GTD field without doing anything crazy. It was fun racing though.
