8th quick in qualifying at Toronto, but starting from the back.

In his first experience on the streets of Toronto, Bryan Herta Autosport driver Daniel Herrington will feel the pain of a start from the back of the grid after a frustrating day of practice and qualifying in the No. 28 BHA/Le Bleu entry. Practice was marred by bad luck, ill timing, limited track time when he was trapped in a run off. The team faired no better in qualifying when the car ran out of fuel and as a result, for the final insult to injury, was penalized with a technical inspection infraction with regards to car weight, costing him a well earned eighth place spot on the grid. Herrington will unfortunately start from the back of the field in 18th place but will hope that some attrition and a turn in luck will help him show the speed he does have by making his way forward on the challenging street circuit.

Qualifying Position: 18th

On qualifying:
“It all started off pretty well with us in the top-five on the scoring charts at the start of qualifying but then it all when downhill in a hurry. We didn’t anticipate that the qualifying session would remain green for so long so we ended up running out of fuel and sitting watching the final 10 minutes unfold. We gave it a good run and an eighth place starting position would have been fair but unfortunately we’ll have to work that much harder for a good finish now.”

On qualifying:
“We’re disappointed for Daniel because he earned his eighth place qualifying position but we made a miscalculation on the amount of fuel needed and that caused us to be light and cost him the position of the starting grid. He’ll have a lot of work to do but we’ll show up for the race ready to prove that we have the speed to move back up.”
