DEVLIN DEFRANCESCO

“The Andretti Steinbrenner guys have done a fantastic job all weekend. We definitely started on the back foot, but we’ve been making progress all weekend. I have to thank all my sponsors, everyone who is on board for this year. I can’t wait for tomorrow. There’s fantastic work going on in the Andretti Steinbrenner truck with all the engineers that we have. We made a few changes and hopefully we make more progress tomorrow.”
