In his debut in The Firestone Indy Lights Series, Felipe Guimarares scores a solid 3rd place finish at the Glen. Technical partner Vision Racing’s James Davison finishes 2nd after leading the for the first quarter of the race. Daniel Herrington struggled with an ill handling car for most of the race and fell back to 6th.

Finishing Position: 3rd
Qualifying Position: 6th

On race:
“It’s my first Firestone Indy Lights race, my first race in this car and my first race here at Watkins so it was a very good result. The Bryan Herta Autosport team gave me a good car and our morning practice set us up very well for the race. I think my car was good but not quite as strong at Saavedra’s, but I was able to overtake him (Saavedra) on the last lap when he made a small mistake. Like all drivers, I would have loved to be on a higher step on the podium but I’m very happy with my first race.”

Finishing Position: 6th
Qualifying Position: 7th

On race:
“We had our fair share of difficulties this weekend with the brakes issue in qualifying and missing on the set up a bit for the race. I thought we had a good car in the warm up but we ended up not being as strong as we though. We still got some good points and we finished when a few didn’t that were ahead of us in the points. We’re looking forward to making it up in Toronto next weekend.”

Bryan Herta – Owner, Bryan Herta Autosport

On team’s first podium finish:
“It’s a great day. I’ve done this long enough to understand that this is what we need to do. We need to run in the Top-5. If we keep putting cars in the Top-5, the wins will come. James (Davison) did a great job today and Felipe obviously did a great job in his first race finish with a podium. Daniel had a bit more of a struggle, but still we got all three cars home in the top-6. We scored points on a lot of guys in front of us in the standings so I am really pleased. This is our best day yet and we still have seven more races to go.
