PECORARI TAKES OVER 4TH PLACE

Once again the old saying that the race is not over until the checkered flag waves, has proven its truth! Team KMA's Indy Pro Series driver Robbie Pecorari, starting on the 22nd position, made his way through the field right from the beginning. A caution on the first lap, and then two further ones later on, did not help him in his quest catching the leader. However, Robbie fought early on and captured more positions each time, ending the race in 11th position under a yellow caution due to rain. This result moves Robbie up into 4th in the Indy Pro Series Championship points and keeps him firmly in 2nd place in the Rookie standings.

"We are certainly happy with the results especially after yesterday's qualifying fiasco" stated Jon Lewis, Team Manager and co-owner of Team KMA Racing. "Naturally a podium finish was what we were shooting for but here in Indy it would have taken a miracle to come from 22nd to the first row as the track is long, fast and most drivers in this field are of high caliber. So, all in all, I truly think that this was the best result we could have expected. Robbie was uncertain of how the car would handle due to the last minute changes we had to make."

"If I could have had this car in qualifying yesterday, I am certain that I would have been in the first couple of rows, if not on the front row" says Robbie Pecorari, a native of Aston, PA. "However, I am happy to move up in the points standing and would like to thank the crew and engineers for recognizing the car's problems in time to make the changes. I also appreciate the support from the race fans, especially the ones from my hometown, who took the time coming to my paddock and encouraging me - thank you!"
