Grand Prix of Portland Qualifying Report

“I think we had a pretty good day all-in-all. We made some gains in the car going into Qualifying. In Group 1, we were up there in the front and then in Round 2 we advanced to the [Firestone] Fast Six, so that was good. In the Fast Six, we thought just for the sake of being different, rolling the dice and trying to go for a strategy that was different than the others and went for [Firestone] black primaries. It wasn’t the flavor of choice this afternoon. The other five in the Fast Six were all on the [Firestone] Reds. We were kind of the sitting duck on Blacks. It is what it is and we tried to go for it. Tomorrow the DHL team is going to put forth 110-percent and go for the win.”

With the starting line up concrete, NTT IndyCar Series track activity is complete for the day and the teams now focus on their race cars.
