INDYCAR Classic Qualifying Report

“I think we have a chance tomorrow, especially on used tires. I was going for everything out there, but really struggling with some rear lock in the brake zones so I had to take a bit easy in those. I was on a pole lap until I hit Turn 15, I was just trying to get a little more time out of it and locked up the left front which put me a little wide. That’s how tight it is in IndyCar – you have to go for every little bit. Congrats to Will (Power) on his 56th pole position. I thought the DHL car had a good shot at it, but we are starting third tomorrow and can win from there.”

The field has been set for the inaugural INDYCAR Classic and the Andretti team will have a car on each of the front two rows. Round 1, Group 2 of qualifying saw a the session come to an end with a red flag which allowed Zach Veach and Alexander Rossi to join Ryan Hunter-Reay (Group 1) in the second round. After the time expired on Round 2 of qualifying, Rossi and Hunter-Reay found themselves in the Firestone Fast Six.
