Grand Prix of Long Beach Qualifying Report

“Obviously disappointing to not make into the Fast Six. We had a unique situation with the tire opportunity in qualifying. We ended up using used Reds to try and move into the Fast Six and it just didn’t seem like we had the performance on them while the others were on new. It was definitely a bit of a fumble considering the speed we’ve had. We’ll have some cars to pass tomorrow to get to the front, but we’ve had good pace this weekend and still have our sights set on a podium finish or the DHL team.”

Alexander Rossi took Long Beach Qualifying by storm capturing a fifth career pole position in a final fast lap. The quartet of Andretti cars have all shown competitive pace throughout the weekend as the team chases a 200th victory.
