AJ Foyt Racing endured a difficult qualifying for today’s GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course as Sebastien Bourdais in the No.14 ROKiT Chevrolet starts the race from 20th place with a time of 01:10.1830s and speaking following the action, the Frenchman said:

“Not the greatest day for the 14 ROKiT Chevrolet with AJ Foyt Racing. “Bit of a difficult morning, didn’t turn a single lap and this afternoon, struggled a little bit with balance issues. Honestly didn’t really find the fixes we were looking for from the last time around at the GP, but we’ll keep digging and hopefully we’ll find something for the warm-up tomorrow.

Charlie Kimball in the No.11 Tresiba Chevrolet starts his first race of the season from 21st place following a time of 01:10.6810s and speaking following the action the Californian commented saying:

“It felt great to get back in the car again. “We had a little bit of first day challenges for the No. 11 Tresiba crew but we worked through it. We had a solid qualifying, but not where we want to be position-wise, and, especially as a team, I think we’re working through some challenges. But man, it felt good to be back in the car, it felt good to be back here at IMS and even better to have all the fans here. I signed a lot of autographs here in the garage area today, and it just reminded me that this is May!”

Dalton Kellett, in the No.4 K-Line Insulator Chevrolet starts the race from 24th with a time of 01:10.9312s and speaking following  the action he said:

Day 1 at IMS and it was great to see the fans back out here and they’re definitely out in full force. “There were lots of people out trying to make up for lost time getting all their rookie pictures signed from last year. As far as qualifying, it was a bit tough. We thought we had decent pace in practice, and then got held up on our two quick laps on reds, so that was a bit unfortunate. Regardless, we still have to find a little bit in the car. We’re struggling a bit with mid-corner understeer and a little loose off with the traction. Still trying to figure it out. We have three cars here, the third car with Charlie so we have lots of data points. We’re all having similar issues so I think we can put our heads together and come up with something good for tomorrow.
