2014 Houston (Race 2): Andretti Autosport IndyCar Race Recap

Ryan Hunter-Reay, No. 28 DHL Honda Salvaged a sixth-place finish after fighting drive train issues for the duration of the 90-lap race Started in the 21st position and closed the gap on second in the points standings "We fought an issue with the drive train all day, so to be able to salvage points and bring home a sixth-place finish was big for us. At this point in the season every point counts, and we want to do everything we can to close in on the championship."

Marco Andretti, No. 25 Snapple Honda

Was seen as high as second on the charts before finishing in the ninth position Rolled off the grid in 16th "The Snapple car was good today; we showed we were a contender for the win, but things didn't end in our favor. I need to get better at getting up to speed on cold tires - which is usually my strong point, so we need to figure that out. We got caught up with other cars at the end and were forced from fifth to 11th and just couldn't get back up to the front before the checkered."

James Hinchcliffe, No. 27 United Fiber & Data Honda

Started today's Race Two, his 60th career start, from seventh place Earned a 15th-place result after struggling with power issues "We clearly can't drive when half of the race is run under yellow. I'm embarrassed almost to have been in that race with the amount of cautions there were. We had an engine problem and were running in the back... but I just can't believe how many cautions there were in the end. It was good for us, all those accidents were moving us up, because obviously we can't make any progress with a damaged car. But, I'm just gutted. It's such a long day out there when you're not really in the race. I think the United Fiber & Data car was competitive up until we had the problem. We'll just move on to the next one."

Carlos Muñoz, No. 34 Cinsay Honda

Came off today's rolling start in the ninth position

Made contact with the wall on Lap 40 - forcing an early retirement to the Race One podium finisher's day in P22 Remains top rookie in the championship points fight (seventh overall) "It's a really disappointing day after the great race we had yesterday. Today I was just pushing hard, trying hard... I was in a good position, for sure. I was fifth at that point (making contact), but this is racing. It was my mistake - I just lost the car, and now I'll focus on next week for Pocono."
