Team Penske’s Scott McLaughlin in the No.3 Gallagher Chevrolet had a great qualifying session for Sunday’s Honda Indy on the streets of Toronto as he will roll off from the front row in second place on the grid. Speaking following the action the New Zealander commented saying:

“Overall, it was a great day for us. We start second which is another street course front row start. Really loving Toronto. Really happy with these guys and my Gallagher Chevrolet. The car was really good. I think we are due for a wet race. It’s something that I’ve always loved to do.”

Will Power, No. 12 Verizon Chevrolet at Team Penske: scored his first FIrestone Fast Six showing of the season and starts Sunday’s 85-lap race from sixth place with a time of 01:05.0703s and speaking following the action he said:

“A very different story (crossing the line a little bit later). You’re a lot better than sixth. We crossed the line P1 and then everyone had another lap and we went to P6. I was a little frustrated because I at least wanted to stay in the top-four. That’s the game, man. Sometimes it flows for you and sometimes it doesn’t. If it didn’t annoy me then I wouldn’t be quick because you don’t care, but I cared massively because it’s so hard to win these races these days. It’s very hard to get in the Fast Six. I was stoked to get in the Fast Six, I really was. You always want more.”

“You can definitely win from sixth. If it’s a straight-forward race, you kind of have to be in the top-four. But you don’t know. I’ve won from way back, so anyone can win from anywhere in this sport. Who knows? It might rain tomorrow and it might be a very mixed-up race anyway.”

Josef Newgarden, No. 2 Chevrolet at Team Penske starts the race from 11th place with a time of 01:13.6353s and speaking following the action, the Tennessee native commented saying:

“Tough day for us. I think we missed a lot of our potential in in qualifying. The first round was really solid; the car was excellent. The team did a stellar job with the wet setup. In mixed conditions, we probably didn’t make the right moves, but it was a good session to learn from for the future, and most importantly, I feel really confident in my racecar. I think we have good speed, and can put that to use in the race tomorrow. Hopefully with Snap-on Tools and Team Chevy, we have a great day.”
