Andretti Autosport’s Colton Herta in the No.26 Gainbridge Honda was delighted with his tenth career NTT P1 Award at Road America on Saturday.

Herta had a great session and speaking following the action he said:

It was just a great car. We’ve been working at it the whole time. Like I said earlier, this place [Road America] with the repave is not easy. To have a car that was stable enough to really attack in the last Fast Six [final qualifying] was impressive. Big props to Nathan O’Rourke, my engineer, the whole Gainbridge Honda crew. It’s been way too long this year for us to get a pole, so it’s nice to finally get one!”

Championship leader Alex Palou in the No.10 The American Legion Chip Ganassi Racing Honda was happy with his qualifying effort as he starts the race from third saying:

It’s a bit disappointing, with the big crash that we had in [morning] practice. We put a lot of work into [repairing] it, not just the #10 car, but all of the Ganassi guys. But, they made it! They gave us the car that we needed to fight for pole. We missed a little bit—but honestly, missing so much of practice 2, I thought was going to affect us a bit more. But, good to be starting third. I’m going to be following Colton on the grid and hopefully we can have a Honda 1-2 after lap one!”
