Scheckter's Day in Edmonton Cut Short
The Rexall Edmonton Indy was filled with ups and downs for MonaVie driver Tomas Scheckter, who finished 18th overall. As the green flag dropped, he had a clean start and gained two positions early on. The first of two unfortunate incidents occurred on lap 16 when Scheckter hit a curb and began to slow down. Later, on lap 94, Scheckter spun and made contact with the retaining wall. Although the day didn't turn out the way he would have liked, Scheckter was in good spirits following the race.
"We will go back now and see what we have for Kentucky," Scheckter said. "We will try and keep some of the positive things we learned here, and hopefully we can have a good car for Kentucky."
