AJ Foyt Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais in the No.14 ROKiT Chevrolet made it into the Firestone Fast 12 with a time of 01:06.9232s and speaking following the action the Frenchman said:

“Pretty frustrating day for the ROKiT No. 14 Chevrolet with AJ Foyt Racing. “Obviously felt like we had a pretty decent shot at it. Barely made it through from Group 1 to Q2, got a pit speed violation – still trying to look at what actually happened because I undershot then overshot the speed and we got dinged for it. Pretty disappointing because it definitely feels like there was potential there for the car to give it a shot to the Fast Six, so we’ll see. It’s going to be a tough day starting 12th tomorrow but we’ll give our best shot.”

Team President Larry Foyt feels that the team just can’t catch a break this season saying:

“It would have been a run for the pole. “We had a fast car. Just can’t catch a break this season.”

Dalton Kellett starts the race from 21st place with a time of 01:07.5866s and speaking following the action he commented saying:

I would say the No. 4 K-Line Insulators USA Team Chevy is feeling as good as it’s felt all weekend. “I think we made some gains between practice and qualifying so that was a good thing. Just need some time gain between Seb and myself. [Have] some stuff to work on, mainly Turn 1, just losing a bit of time there but getting back on power in the keyhole so we will be working on that in warmup. And we’ll be doing some longer runs to see how those Firestone reds will progress for a longer run. Overall, relatively happy and looking forward to what we’ll have for tomorrow
