WOMEN’S RESULTS

13: RINUS WEEKAY No. 21 BITNILE.COM Chevrolet
26: RYAN HUNTER-REAY No. 20 BITNILE.COM Chevrolet

NEXT RACE: Hy-Vee Homefront 250 at Iowa Speedway, July 22 (NBC, 2 p.m. ET)

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, NO. 20 BITNILE.COM CHEVROLET

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, No. 20 BITNILE.COM Chevrolet, finished 26th: “Unfortunately, very few days. I started well and was alongside (Jack) Harvey. I’m not really sure what happened as I haven’t reviewed the video yet, but I believe there was a penalty for avoidable contact. There were just too many cars in too little space and now we’re leaving Toronto with nothing to show for our efforts. Doubleheader in Iowa.” Photo courtesy INDYCAR Photo

FOR NOTE:

Ryan Hunter-Reay started today’s Honda Indy Toronto from 21st. In turn 1 of the first lap, Chevrolet no. 20 BITNILE.COM was hit by another competitor. The contact pushed Hunter-Reay into the car he was already inside and a seven-car crash ensued. No. 20 backed up against the wall and the crew was unable to make repairs. Hunter-Reay was awarded a 26th place finish.

RINUS WEEKAY, NO. 21 BITNILE.COM CHEVROLET

RINUS WEEKAY, No. 21 BITNILE.COM Chevrolet, complete 13: “It’s been a tough year and to be in contention for somewhere around 8th would have been a really good result for us. Unfortunately, we just had that long pit stop. The boys are doing their best and we have some very good stops, but we had some bad luck that we couldn’t foresee. We lost about 10 seconds and that was bad. Then I went all out and gave it my all, we didn’t have much tire left at the end. Just a big shout out to my BITNILE.COM team. We had a good car and the strategy was good. It was a tough game but we definitely have some positives to take into the next competition.” Photo courtesy INDYCAR Photo

FOR NOTE:

Rinus VeeKay made it through the second round of qualifying yesterday and earned the 12th starting position for this afternoon’s Honda Indy Toronto. He started the race on the main black tires, which he lasted until the 37th lap. When he made his first pit stop, he was running well in 8th place. Staying out during the two full caution periods that followed, he cycled up to 3rd position. During his second stop on lap 59, a piece of pit equipment malfunctioned and resulted in a lengthy stop. He dropped back to 16th, but made up several positions in the closing laps to earn 13th.
