“I am extremely happy, it was a great race,” Kanaan said. “When the last yellow came out, my engineers told me I was good to go to the end and I was pretty happy to take the second. It's a great result for Chevrolet, one, two and three. I have to thank GEICO and Mouser Electronics as well as my personal sponsors. My No.11 crew did a great job today and thanks to the Andretti boys for helping us out when I exited my pit box.
