AJ Foyt Racing had a wonderful day of qualifying for the 107th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge, which takes place next Sunday, May 28. Santino Ferrucci in the No.14 Homes For Troops Chevrolet and Benjamin Pedersen in the No.55 Sexton Properties Chevrolet are guaranteed to start ‘The Greatest Spectacle In Racing’ inside the top 12.
Santino Ferrucci in the No.14 Chevrolet ended the day in ninth place with a four-lap average of 233.147MPH for ninth place and speaking following the action he said:
“Good run for us. I will work to keep our momentum rolling! Driving for AJ Foyt I think it makes it even more special. It’s a relief to be honest. you know, I’m just happy where we are today. I think it’s a huge testament one day at a time for this team, but I will tell you right now, I think we have a better race car than we do a qualifying car. That will make it more exciting for us. So I think we will go out again around 4:00 PM because I guess that’s what you are supposed do.”
Benjamin Pedersen, No. 55 Chevrolet at AJ Foyt Racing ended the day as the fastest rookie in 11th place with a four-lap average of 232.739MPH and speaking following the action he said:
“It’s helpful but at the end of the day, you’ve got to get in the race car and go. But man, it was a pretty good car. You know, there’s little things where I could have done that a little bit better. But honestly, it was a really good run and yeah, it’s it’s fast. It was my first but my best ever qualifying here but that’s because it’s my first ever qualifying here. So the presence here is amazing. The vibe everything AJs presents being right over my shoulder with running on track is very special.”
