Bryan Herta Autosport concluded it’s first season in the Firestone Indy Lights Series today with a 12th place finish at Homestead-Miami. Daniel and the team struggled to find the optimal setup for the car and qualified mid-pack in 9th. In the race, Daniel fought his way up to 7th before the car’s handling got worse and he fell to 12th. He hung on until the end and brought the #28 BHA Natures Pearl/Le Bleu car home in one piece. Daniel finished his first full Firestone Indy Lights season an admirable 7th in the points.
The weekend was quite humorous as well. During practice BHA mechanic Butch took off his gloves only to realize that both of his hands were completely purple! No attempts to wash them off worked. Butch requested to know who was responsible for the prank, but no one claimed it, so he stated that “he would get everyone good” at a later date.
