Ed Carpenter Racing’s Conor Daly in the No.20 U.S Air Force Chevrolet says that qualifying for the Big Machine Spiked Coolers Grand Prix of Indianapolis was good for the team as he starts today’s race from eighth place and speaking following the action he commented saying;

It was a pretty good day for us today! Our cars are quick here again. We qualified 6th in May and 8th here today, with our teammate in 9th. We have a good racecar, we just want to not get taken out on the first lap! I’m just really happy to have gotten a good qualifying result here. It’s so much easier starting at the front than at the back!

Rinus VeeKay in the No.21 SONAX Chevrolet starts the race from ninth place and is hoping for a strong event here having taken his maiden IndyCar Series victory here in May and speaking ahead of the race he commented saying:

I am bummed. We had really good pace in practice, but all of a sudden I was struggling to find any grip in the car and it was tough to keep the car on track. We’ll look at it tonight and get heading back the right way tomorrow.
