Kanaan Posts Season Best Finish of Third at Honda Grand Prix of Monterey

Starting Position: 14th PPG Cup: 10th
Finished: 3rd Rookie Standings: 1st
"It was a tough race. We started at the back and I knew my car wasn't the fastest car on the track, but it was consistent. I was trying to save fuel at the beginning, and Steve (Horne) did a great job with our fuel strategy. When everyone made their second pit stops, I didn't stop. I pushed really hard and that was my fastest lap of the race. I gained a lot of track. When I came to the pits on my stop, my guys did a great job and I jumped to fourth.
"I am very happy. The only thing I did today was drive the car. My guys did everything and the Honda guys did everything. To be honest, I started 14th and passed three guys. The rest my team did."
