ABC Supply 500 Qualifying Report

2015-pocono2x-race15“I think that was a good run. We could have been a little bit better maybe, but you have to be careful. Especially considering what happened with Charlie (Kimball) there — you can overstep it here. It’s a fine line. Usually for 500-mile races it’s not a big deal for qualifying, you don’t put much emphasis on it, but here it’s very tough to pass sometimes. They don’t call it the Tricky Triangle for nothing.”

The Verizon IndyCar Series is at Pocono Raceway this weekend for the ABC Supply Co. 500. Today’s on track action saw a 90-minute practice session followed by afternoon qualifying around Pennsylvania’s “Tricky Triangle”.

It was Colombian Carlos Muñoz leading the qualifying effort today for the Andretti Four; he will start from the sixth position tomorrow. Following him on the grid will be teammates Justin Wilson and Ryan Hunter-Reay lining up in seventh and eighth, respectively. Marco Andretti topped the speed charts early in the morning session, but a tricky Lap 1 in qualifying leaves the hometown favorite in P22 for the start of tomorrow’s 500 miles.
