Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio Qualifying Report

“Some others ended up getting through with barely using the [Firestone] Reds from Q2, and unfortunately we used ours pretty hard, so we just didn’t have it there at the end of the Fast Six. It was a pretty good lap for the tires that we had, but the other guys just had fresher rubber at the end. But we ended up third, and we can make it happen from there. We just have to put our heads together and tweak the race car for the track tomorrow. Without warm up it may be interesting, and we’ll have to make our best educated guess – but we can do it from third.”

It’s been an All Andretti weekend so far at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Twin poles and a podium sweep in Indy Lights and Ryan Hunter-Reay’s lead over the IndyCar time charts was topped off by NAPA Racing driver Alexander Rossi taking the Pole position for the 90-lap Honda Indy 200.
