Daniel Herrington in the #28 Le Blue car started 18th at Toronto due to the car being too light at inspection. The race began the track was wet and all drivers utilizing their rain tires. The track soon dried and we saw something not very common in the Firestone Indy Lights Series, a pit stop. All the drivers came in a switches to a slick tire. Daniel worked his way through the field and finished 9th. Daniel has only finished out of the top 10 once this season.

On race:
“We were okay for the first few laps on rain tires but it was difficult to feel the grip level while I was still trying to be aggressive so I just stayed patient. We changed to slick tired and suffered a bit of a set back on the pit stop but otherwise I had pretty strong out laps. Once I got going the no.28 Le Bleu car was running as fast as the leaders were but unfortunately were weren’t able to make up enough ground in the pit stop but we ran pretty well, passed a few ahead of me and ran fastest on the second to last lap. We’ll just have to keep working on it.”

On race:
“I’m disappointed because it’s a missed opportunity for us. Especially for James who was the fastest car in the race and we didn’t give either guy the pit stop they need to try and challenge for a win. For Daniel, starting from the back already had the makings of a long day but he worked really hard to get himself into the top-10. We’re disappointed that we weren’t better prepared for the stop which made all the difference.”
