Houston, TX (28 June 2014) – Dale Coyne Racing driver Justin Wilson will start the first race of the Houston Grand Prix double header from seventh on the grid with the No. 19 Boy Scouts of America Honda/Dallara on Saturday (NBCSN, 3:00 PM ET live broadcast). Wilson bounced back from a frustrating Friday to move into the second round of qualifying, and only came up a few hundreths of a second short of moving to the final Fast Six qualifying session.
“Unfortunately, we missed the fast six but we are really close and have found a nice direction with the Boy Scouts of America car,” said Wilson. “This track is fun-it is a bit like driving a go kart here. It is a lot of fun, but very physical. It is tough, you want to attack but at some time have to be patient,” said Wilson. “It is a difficult balance to strike. Also, in the back of your mind, you have to also think about race two, because we have all this to do again tomorrow.”
Both races will be aired LIVE on NBCSN starting at 3:00 PM (ET) Saturday and Sunday.
