ABC Supply 500 Qualifying Report

“ We had a pretty good run. Coming out of Turn 1, for some reason I got up into fifth gear sooner than expected and had to go up to sixth at that point – going into the wind. The car just fell on its face, so we lost some speed there. But nothing like what we needed to put up numbers like [Power and Newgarden] ran; they’re definitely on another level right now. I was hoping for a cloud cover, but it rolled in right as we finished the run. But it was a good run for the 28 DHL boys and we can go out and have a good race from fourth tomorrow – that’s the important thing.”

With rain clouds looming, one by one the field of 21 Verizon IndyCar Series drivers laid down their fastest times to set the grid for Sunday’s ABC Supply 500.

  • QUALIFYING SPEED: 217.806 mph
  • OF NOTE: Tomorrow’s start will mark the fifth time this season the DHL driver has started within the front two rows // The 2015 Pocono winner earned his best starting position on the 2.5-mile oval since his inaugural race at the “Tricky Triangle” in 2013 where he started second

The 2018 edition of the ABC Supply 500 will air live at 1:30 p.m. ET Sunday on NBC Sports Network.
