THE MODERATOR: We're now joined by the second- and third-place finishers in today's race. Second place, Logan Gomez. Career best finish. His previous best was sixth. For Jaime, his third third-place finish this year.
Logan, talk about your run out there today.
LOGAN GOMEZ: Well, I'm very happy with the finish. Like you said, it's our best finish. You know, started ninth in this race, so it's always nice to move up. The car got really strong when I believe other teams' cars went away at the end.
It was hard on that last restart. We were running through pit lane on the apron, we picked up quite a bit of rubber. I think the last restart was just whoever got the tires the cleanest before the green flag really had the jump on everybody. Was working real hard to do that. That's what got us two more positions at the end.
THE MODERATOR: Jaime, talk about your run out there today.
JAIME CAMARA: To be honest, I didn't expect to be third place. We unloaded here on Friday thinking that we were going to be really strong here. But first and second practice showed that we had a long way to go. We changed our setup completely for qualifying and warmup. We went kind of progressive gaining a little bit to see which way we needed to go for the race. It worked.
When I started the race, I had no clue what the car was going to do, to be honest. I was really happy when the first three laps the car was there and I could gain positions. Car was pretty consistent during the whole race. I was not quick enough to be on the top two, to be honest. But the last accident, when we had to come to the pit lane, I picked up a lot of rubber. The last restart, I couldn't start good because I got loose on three and four. That kind of ditched my race.
THE MODERATOR: Questions for either driver.
Q. (No microphone.)
LOGAN GOMEZ: They cleaned the track pretty well for the start. Once we were pretty much halfway, there were quite a few marbles on the bottom and you had to (indiscernible) on the top. Going two-wide was pretty difficult. But running a car length back, half a car length high, it was feasible. You could get a good run off the corner.
THE MODERATOR: Guys, thank you very much.
