AJ Foyt Racing’s Tony Kanaan in the No.14 ABC Supply Chevrolet said that day 1 of practice was a learning day for the team ending practice 2 with a time of 01:09.8971s and speaking following the day’s action he said:

 “It was a learning day for us. This was a track that we had a lot of difficulty at last year, so I think we’re closer – although the position that we finished (21st) doesn’t look like that – but we’re only seven-tenths (of a second) behind first place, which if we improve by three-tenths we’re in the top 10. We’ve got to keep working. If we’re able to improve for tomorrow, I think we’ll be OK.”

Mathues Matt Leist in the No.4 ABC Supply Chevrolet ended the day just ahead of TK in the No.4 ABC Supply Chevrolet with a time of 01:09.8893s and speaking following the day’s action he said:

Not really the day we wanted here at the track. I made a mistake coming out of the pits in the first practice, and unfortunately, I crashed the car. It’s not a big crash, but we couldn’t continue – we had to change the wings and check everything. The second session was OK, but we still need to improve for tomorrow. I felt that the car had a lot of oversteer, mainly with the red (Firestone alternate) tires, which I thought we would pick up a lot of understeer. It was a balance change we were not expecting as a team, so we just have to regroup, watch the videos, analyze the data and see what to do to improve for tomorrow.”
