Dale Coyne Racing’s Zachary Claman DeMelo in the No.19 Paysafe Honda starts Saturday’s 85 lap road course race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway from 19th place on the grid having set a qualifying time of 01:10.5064s.
Speaking following the session, the Canadian commented by saying:
The pace isn’t really where we want it to be right now,” said Claman De Melo. “We rolled out of the box pretty good with the Paysafe car and we had a decent first practice session this morning, but then we ended up struggling in Practice 2 and despite making changes we didn’t quite have the pace we’d like in qualifying. We’ll look over everything tonight and get ready for tomorrow. I’m confident my Dale Coyne Racing crew will give me a good car for the race.
