RACE RECAP: REV Group Grand Prix at Road America

Despite starting from the 10th position, Marco Andretti’s race ended early. On Lap 16, shortly after the first round of pit stops, the third-generation driver sensed an issue occurring with the car. The engine was mis-firing and the timing stand coached Andretti through a few scenarios to diagnose the issue. On Lap 18 the 98 machine was called into the pits where the team and Honda continued to work to diagnose the issue. After several minutes and a handful of laps spent in pit lane, Andretti climbed out of the car, settling for a 23rd-place finish


With a two-week break in the schedule, the team heads back to Indianapolis to prepare for a three-week run, traveling to Toronto, Iowa and Ohio for back-to-back-to-back race weekend.
The Honda Indy Toronto will be held July 14th with coverage beginning at 3 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network.

In His Words

“The issue seemed to be electrical to me. The car was shortening out. I was getting good runs in the beginning off of the corners then guys started driving around me. It seemed incurable and we weren’t sure about it. We didn’t want to continue because we didn’t know how to fix it. It’s an unfortunate day for the U.S. Concrete guys, but we’ll work hard to bounce back.”
