Driver Quote
“All things considered, our P15 finish in St. Pete is a decent result. The Team Barracuda – BHA crew gave me a good car and we were able to run leader’s pace at times. A few technical issues cost us valuable time and positions, but overall it was a good car.

“I started feeling sick during the St. Pete race weekend and was diagnosed with Influenza A-B after returning to Indy. I’ve been taking measures to feel better throughout the week and hope to be back to 100 percent by race time on Sunday.

“Barber is going to be another test for us this weekend. I like the track quite a bit – it’s intense and very difficult with high-speed corners and it’s just a pretty fast track. Unfortunately, we had to change our engine after the race in St. Petersburg, so we’ll be starting ten places behind our qualifying position. Also, some of the other teams have tested here in the off-season, so there’s a little bit of an advantage, but we’ll continue to evolve with the car and do the best we can.”
