“I was trying to stay clean at the start, but that didn’t work. That was out the window in Turn 1,” Ensor said in an online article for Speed News. “I was on the outside and somebody came into me in in Turn 1. I lost a few spots, and then it was just a battle for 45 minutes to try to get back toward the front.”
