Daniel Herrington, driving for Valencia’s Bryan Herta and his Bryan Herta Autosport team, finished 14th in the Firestone Indy Lights race at The Milwaukee Mile on Saturday. He spun out on lap 86 of the 100-lap race and crashed into the inside wall at the track.
“We had a little bit of push in the car all day and that was the first time it gave any indication that it was loose and so then it stepped out pretty suddenly and that caught me off guard; then I was just along for the ride,” said Herrington. “It was a pretty disappointing way to end the race because there wasn’t very much further to go in the race and we had a decent run up until then. That’s not the way that I saw this weekend going, but sometimes you have those (accidents).”
It was Herrington’s first DNF of the season and the second of his Indy Lights career. It was also his worst finish of the season. In his five previous races, Herrington has posted four top 10s and one top five.
Mario Romancini won the pole, led every lap and won the race at Milwaukee.
J.R. Hildebrand, the leader in the Indy Lights series standings, finished third.
Camarillo’s Charlie Kimball, driving for the Palm Beach International Raceway team, was 10th.
The race will be televised on Versus at 1 p.m. PDT.
