Herdez Competition Scores Double Top Ten in Vancouver

Mario Dominguez, #55 Herdez/Lola/ Ford-Cosworth

Mario on the day: "We had a very good first stint and were running third before our first stop. My car was very good all day, I was able to drive it hard. I guess we were outsmarted on strategy by one team today. They short-filled and it worked, so that was a great strategy. Sixth is not where I wanted to end up, but I will take the points and carry on to Road America."

Ryan Hunter-Reay, #4 Herdez/Lola/Ford-Cosworth

Ryan on the day: "We had a good start to the race, I held my position and my car was strong. We rolled the dice with our strategy by coming in early trying to get out of sequence and then half of the field did it so that didn't work out unfortunately. Unfortunately we were beaten by RuSport's strategy. We made a lot of progress over the weekend with the car and I am looking forward to Road America where I had a very good test."

Keith Wiggins, Co-Owner/Managing Director: "We are very disappointed, while it was a solid result, we along with the other teams lost out during the pits-strategy and bad positioning with traffic and I feel that obviously we didn't get the result that we wanted. As always we will go back and analyze and make sure that we move forward."
