Milwaukee IndyFest Qualifying Report

milwaukeeWhile not being completely satisfied with the No. 28 machine during the morning practice sessions, Ryan Hunter-Reay found the speed he was looking for during qualifying and will lead the way for Andretti Autosport tomorrow. His lap-average speed of 167.911 miles per hour secured the third position; however, he will move up to the second position on the grid as ten-spot grid penalties have been assigned to seven drivers who all undergone unapproved engine changes in the field.

“We had a great run for the DHL/Sun Drop Chevy. The guys did a great job on the car – we were all over the sixth-gear limiter on our last lap or, I think, we would have been quick enough for pole. We couldn’t have predicted we would be that quick though, it’s the quickest we’ve been all weekend. It’s tough for the crew, especially the engineers, trying to pick which gears to go with. It’s like shooting with a blindfold on sometimes.”
