Speaking following the session, Leist said:
We just finished qualifying here at Barber. I think we had a great qualifying. We finished eighth in our group, so we’re probably going to be starting around 15th or 17th tomorrow, so looking forward to it. I think from where we started the weekend on Friday, we definitely already made some progress. We still have a warmup to go tomorrow before the race and looking forward to doing a great job here again.
Tony Kanaan in the No.14 ABC Supply Chevrolet starts the race from 19th place having set a fastest lap of 01:09.0327s and speaking following the session he said:
The struggles continue. We are trying to improve. It was a very difficult race for us here last year. The field is much closer today and we feel like we’re closer, but it doesn’t translate to the position on track, so we still have a lot of work to do for tomorrow
