Congratulations on the ride! Thanks, I'm really excited. It's something different and it's going to be a big learning curve for me, but I´m looking forward to it. It's going to be a warmer year for you next year! Yeah, I've been in BSB too long, it'll be nice to go and race in some heat!...

Indeed, on the very last lap, he edged ahead of Avintia Racing's Hector Barbera into the last points scoring place but the Spaniard pipped the Briton to the line, thus denying Laverty his first points of the season by just 0.167s after 21 laps of the Texas track. Laverty commented, "I'm...
