Meyer Shank Racing’s Jack Harvey in the No.60 AutoNation Sirius XM Honda will start Sunday’s inaugural Big Machine Music City Grand Prix in Nashville on Sunday from sixth place following a solid qualifying for the Englishman. Harvey qualified in seventh place but starts from sixth following Alex Palou’s penalty and speaking following the action he said:
“If we were able to finish our final lap without that yellow, I think we would have been right on the edge of transferring, but I’m pretty happy with the day. “At the end of the day, it was a pretty good performance by everybody on the No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda and everyone at Meyer Shank Racing has been doing a really, really, good job and these are the kinds of performances we want to have. Maybe it could have been a little bit better, I’m sure we’ll dissect it tonight and find a few more tenths to try and improve. We’ve put ourselves in a good position to go and have a good Sunday.”
Helio Castroneves in the No.06 Transcard Honda starts his first race since winning the Indianapolis 500 from 15th place and speaking following the action he commented saying:
I would have to say MSR is doing a great job,” said Castroneves. “They gave me all the information that I needed. Honestly, because the field is competitive and having not raced since May, it just takes a little bit longer than I expected but we’re fine, we’re right there. Our plan was to take a little bit longer with the reds because every time I go out there it’s something better, something better, something better. Tomorrow is another big day, another learning day.
