A.J. Foyt’s ABC Supply team switched to Chevrolet this season with 25-year-old drivers Carlos Munoz (No. 14) and Conor Daly (No. 4). In the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix, Munoz finished 14th and 11th in Duals 1 and 2; Daly did not finish Dual 1 due to electrical woes and he was 12th in Dual 2.
CARLOS MUNOZ: “Texas changed its layout from last year and we tested there earlier this year. We made a lot of improvement from where we started the test but we still need to make a few more.
