A frustrated Santino Ferrucci in the No.14 Sexton Properties AJ Foyt Racing Chevrolet says they are not a 21st-place car after he struggled in qualifying for Sunday’s Honda Indy 200 presented by the 2025 Honda Civic Hybrid. Speaking following the action he said:

”Obviously, we’re not a 21st place car. “It’s kind of unfortunate with the way that the groups work but we were just kind of a lap short with all the traffic in qualifying. We needed one more lap to get the tires started and going, so yeah, three-tenths is the difference in being well inside the Fast 12 and basically not great. We’re on par with some of our Penske teammates though and just tough to not have some outright pace this weekend in Q, but our race pace I think is really good.”

Sting Ray Robb in the No.41 GoodHeart Chevrolet was happy with his qualifying despite starting the race from 26th place and speaking following the action he commented saying:

Fairly happy with 26th today. I know that’s a strange thing but the improvement that we made from the first two practices to qualifying was absolutely massive,” Robb explained. “I was very unhappy with the car this morning, and going into qualifying I thought that we were taking a knife to a gun fight but we actually put the car in a really good window with a good change from the crew, so super proud of them for that. Not having the deploy for the hybrid system in qualifying I think hurt us quite a bit, as well. Unfortunate that that was the case for the day but I think that we’re going to be really good in the race. I’m really happy with the car right now and I think we’re in a much better window. I think that we’ve got some consistency that we can pull from and race forward.
