Iowa Corn 300 Recap

James Hinchcliffe
No. 5 Arrow Electronics Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda
“It was a bit of a long day for us, to be honest. We had a really quick car in certain points of the day, but really struggled with the car going loose in traffic. There was a bunch of times where we had really good runs on cars, and as I tried to pull up behind them, we just totally lost the back of the car. We were really fighting that all night long… it was a bit of a battle out there for sure. I feel bad for Mikhail, obviously, and certainly not the finish that we wanted. We probably had a fifth-place car, but unfortunately we couldn’t pull that off today. It was nice to get a finish after some of the luck we’ve had the last few rounds. We head to a street circuit which is what we’ve been strong at so far this year, so hopefully we can have a good result in the Arrow car in Toronto.”


Mikhail Aleshin
No. 7 Lucas Oil Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda
“We had a loose car all day and felt like I was holding on to my life there that whole stint. I’m not sure how many saves they might have shown [on the broadcast] but on that last lap it just went, and I couldn’t do anything to save it.”
