Kyle LeDuc - No. 99 GMC HUMMER EV
“The end goal is certainly to make the Semi Final and we were able to do that. There was just so much chaos out there and it wasn’t the most ideal race for us. But we managed to get through it with a decent set of results to set ourselves up for a big day tomorrow. The entire Chip Ganassi Racing team is motivated and we will be ready to roll."
Sara Price - No. 99 GMC HUMMER EV
"In Qualifying 1, we wanted to have a good, clean run and we did just that. Then, in Qualifying 2, it was door-to-door racing which was a whole different ballgame. We definitely left it all out there on the track and I think it was maybe the craziest race in Extreme E history. We got the No. 99 GMC HUMMER EV to the finish line and ultimately are in a decent position in tomorrow’s Semi Final 2.”
