After a great performance, Herdez-backed driver Michel Jourdain Jr. achieved points for the fourth time this season after finishing 11th on the race results sheet for Target Grand Prix Presented by Energizer.

Michel Jourdain Jr., Car #16, Herdez/Bettenhausen Motorsports: "My car was great and to have a two-pit stop strategy worked very well. Unfortunately something failed, we don't know what yet. Probably it was something electronic."

Joe Ward, Team Manager, Herdez/Bettenhausen Motorsports: "This was a disappointing result, because the fact we had an undetermined problem on lap 207. We had run as high as third and we were running eighth at the time of the problem. Michel (Jourdain Jr.) drove a great race. Tom (Brown, engineer) set up a perfect car, we did not change it all the race long. Even though our fueling crewmen were both out due to medical reasons, the pit crew did a good job. Now, we look forward to Mid-Ohio."
