Texas Motor Speedway Turns up the Heat
Fort Worth, Texas (June 5, 2010) - The motto of the Boy Scouts is: "Be prepared" and prepared, we were.
Qualifying 6th yesterday, Lloyd was prepared to come out strong and take advantage of his position in front. But during the first pit stop, while the caution was out on lap 47, traffic on pit row affected Lloyd's ability to get to the team's spot accurately. The delay caused him to drop to the back of the 26 driver field. However, once he got back onto the track, he proved throughout the rest of the race that Boy Scouts know how to persevere through anything, gaining 20 spots and bringing himself back up into 6th position. Ultimately, Lloyd again demonstrated that he deserves to be at the front and finished 8th.
"Great day today by the Boy Scouts of America crew," said Lloyd. "The guys gave me a great car and great pit stops. We fought hard today and came home with yet another outstanding result. It was great to continue the momentum from Indianapolis and we look forward to racing in Iowa. "
Driver of the #18 CITGO car, Milka Duno, had one of her most competitive weekends of her Indy Car career. Finishing 6th during the first practice session yesterday, she qualified 17th out of the 26 car field. Duno was running competitive lap times after slight changes during her first two pit stops.
However, after her 109th lap of the race today, Duno left the race due to mechanical problems. Debris from Simona De Silvestro's crash punctured the radiator in Duno's car, thus causing problems cooling the engine. This was the end of what could have been a great weekend for Duno.
