Hard Luck for Herta in Gallagher GP at Indy

What looked to be shaping up to be a great day for Colton Herta quickly turned into a bad one at Indianapolis Motor Speedway Saturday afternoon.

Herta was victorious on the track’s 14-turn, 2,439-mile infield road course in May, but an apparent mechanical issue prematurely ended the Andretti Autosport driver’s day in the Gallagher Grand Prix.

“The No. 26 Gainbridge Honda was strong all weekend,” Herta said. “The crew did a great job with the setup, I think we were the car to beat honestly. We had the issue halfway through the race and there was nothing we could do at that point. I’m looking forward to Nashville. As a team, we’ve been strong on street courses, so I think we’ll be in a good position.”
