Dale Coyne Racing’s new signing Colin Braun will make his NTT INDYCAR SERIES race debut from 25th place having set a fastest time of 01:01.3044s. Braun is only contracted to compete in Sunday’s race and will be hoping to have a solid race for the team and to continue in the next race. Speaking following the qualifying session, Braun commented saying:

“It’s been a huge learning curve for me. Every practice has been better and better. These guys at Dale Coyne Racing, they’ve been doing a really good job of getting me up to speed and more and more comfortable every time I go out in the car. That was sort of my first real run on the alternate tire and it makes a lot more grip. Yesterday, my second run on the black tire was all red so I didn’t really get a feel for that then we went right into the green alternate tire. So yeah, big jump on the grip level but happy to be making good gains and feeling more comfortable every time I jump in the car and looking forward to doing more tomorrow.”

Jack Harvey in the No.18 INVST Honda will roll off from 27th place with a time of 01:00.5712s and speaking following the action Harvey said:

“Qualifying was a little underwhelming, I thought we were going to have a bit more speed than what we had but, that said, it’s just been great to be back this weekend with everyone at Dale Coyne Racing. I do think our race car seems to be in a better window than qualifying so we will see how tomorrow goes. I was a little worried about what might happen, but we’re going to go out and push as hard as we can with the No. 18 INVST Honda and do the best we can in the race.”
