began really promisingly for me and my team.” Félix da Costa had
constructed his best subordinate of a deteriorate and started a foe from
fifth on a grid in a #28 Andretti ATEC-003. “To start form the
top-five was a really certain subordinate result. It shows that we have

Blomqvist during a wheel, was shop-worn in an occurrence on path one. That
