Linus Lindqvist in the No.60 Carrie’s Country Meyer Shank Racing Honda, who is competing in his first NTT INDYCAR SERIES race weekend in place of Simon Pagenaud, will start the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix on the streets of Nashville from 11th place. Speaking following the action, the Swede said:

“Qualifying in INDYCAR is intense, but I love it. This was exactly what we hoped for and could have asked for. I knew it was going to be extremely tough to transfer out of the first group, but we made a smart choice to go red red [on tires] knowing that it was going to be a struggle here in the Fast 12. Just reaching this point was really good. Great day for us and massive thank you to the team. The AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda was awesome today, massive thank you to everyone and we’ll chip away at it tomorrow.”

Helio Castroneves starts the race from 17th place after setting a 01:16.2203s and speaking following the action he said:

“Our second stint was actually pretty good. I got a little too greedy in Turn Four and locked up the front (tires) and destroyed the right front tire but believe it or not we still had a shot to advance (to Q2) but when I got to Turn Nine, because of that issue and the vibration the car just didn’t turn. But this is probably one of the best cars I’ve had all season.”
