Will Power in the No.12 Verizon Business Team Penske Chevrolet will start today’s Acura Grand Prix from second place alongside pole-sitter Felix Rosenqvist. Power who set the fastest time of 01:06.0211s overcame some challenging moments on Saturday and speaking following the action he commented:

“I’ll take a top-six. Just getting back into the Fast Six again is a big deal for me. Working hard on my qualifying, been quick all year in practice, so super stoked to transfer. Obviously, it’s a bit when you miss out by that much, but Felix (Rosenqvist) must have done a phenomenal lap. I couldn’t pick anywhere where I made a mistake. It was about as good as I could do, so it’s cool to get the Verizon car on the front row again. It’s been a long time. We can certainly win from there. You’ve just got to be smart. You can never predict what’s going to happen. We’ll try and get a good start. We’ll try and stay in second and go from there.”

Championship leader Josef Newgarden in the No.2 Hitachi Team Penske Chevrolet starts the race from third place after setting a 01:06.1056s and speaking following the action he commented:

“The Hitachi Chevy was exactly where I needed it to be. It absolutely had pole-winning potential. I just did not nail the lap completely. Still, a great effort by Chevy and everyone on this No. 2 team. Felix (Rosenqvist), Will (Power) and I were so close in time; almost historically close. We can definitely make something happen in the race from the third position.”

Scott McLaughlin in the No.3 Odyssey Batteries Chevrolet will start the race from 11th and speaking following the action he said:

“As the race approaches, I’m focused on finding the right strategy to stay at the front. I’ll be sending the Odyssey Battery Chevrolet toward the front on the first lap and making sure we have good stops and in-and-out laps, make the right strategic moves at the right times. While luck and good fortune play a role, if we keep heads down and keep working to hopefully find themselves at the front of the race on Sunday. I’m optimistic about our chances for success.”
