MAVTV 500 Qualifying Report

MAVTV500_2Ryan Hunter-Reay captured his first career championship at Auto Club Speedway in the 2012 IndyCar finale. Running inside the top 10 in morning practice, Hunter-Reay and the DHL Chevy will start tomorrow’s 500-mile race from the outside of Row 5.

“We have some imbalances we have to work on, but I’ve got great memories of this track from last year and certainly felt the most pressure I’ve ever felt in my life, and I wish I could do it all over again. It’s unfortunate we don’t have it all to put it the DHL Chevy on pole today, but it’s a part of racing. It’s the ebb and flow of the whole sport and I couldn’t be more thankful for the position I’m in. We have a shot to go for it (the championship) again next year, and I certainly believe that we can. We’re going to have some fun (tomorrow); we’re going to work on the car this evening in practice and hopefully make it a bit better. We’re really working on trying to use all lanes – that’s our biggest goal right now. We’re going for it (the win)… it may not be possible, but we’ll try it. I’m sure tomorrow night will be an exciting show.”
