Camarillo’s Charlie Kimball finished fifth in the Firestone Indy Lights race at the Grand Prix of Edmonton on Saturday at the Edmonton City Centre Circuit, a temporary street course.
Daniel Herrington, driver for Bryan Herta Autosport, finished ninth. He started ninth, but dropped back early in the race and had to battle back to finish in the top 10. It’s was a similar pattern to how the race in Toronto unfolded.
"That’s twice, at both Toronto and Edmonton, that we’ve started out slow but built up speed and by the end of the race we were one of the faster cars out there and catching a lot of guys,” Herrington said. “In this case, we lost so much ground in the first 25 laps that it was too much to make up. We’ll take a look at this race and try to figure out what I need to do to be more aggressive at the beginning of races to stay in the mix so that at the end we can keep being as strong as we really are and pick a few people off to get some better results.”
Valencia’s Bryan Herta is part owner of the Bryan Herta Autosport team. Herrington is in seventh place in the Indy Lights standings.
J.R. Hildebrand won the Edmonton race, his third of the season, and extended his lead in the Indy Lights standings.
