JOURDAIN JR & MEMO GIDLEY TAKE 18 & 14 POSITIONS

Herdez-backed drivers Michel Jourdain Jr. & Memo Gidley took 18 & 14 positions in the Texaco Grand Prix of Houston. Both drivers regained a lot of positions, but due to several problems, they couldn't achieve some points.

Michel Jourdain Jr., Car #19 Herdez/Payton-Coyne Racing Team: "The car had a setting that developed problems with the tires, they went off easily and obviously it was undriveable. It developed a lot of loose."

Memo Gidley, Car #71 Herdez/Payton-Coyne Racing Team: "The car was really good during the race. I knew that on qualifying, but I kick myself for making a mistake. Only the brakes were not very good, but we were able to regain some positions. Unfortunately, the 4th gear got stuck and we could not finish the race. However, we are getting better every race."
