Scott Goodyear: #52 Thermos® Grill2Go™ Cheever Indy Racing Infiniti
Position: 18th Speed: 220.420 mph Time: 40.8311 seconds

Goodyear (on Thursday practice): "It was great to have Thermos® Grill2Go™ join the Cheever Indy Racing team today. We encountered a few electrical gremlins on our #52 Thermos®Grill2Go™ Infiniti, but the guys have done a great job of fixing them as we go. We lost some time and a bit of speed since the other day, so we're working on how to get it back tomorrow."
