Colton Herta in the No.26 Gainbridge Honda for Andretti says that it was a great day for the team at Mid-Ohio on Saturday.
Herta secured his second NTT P1 Award in succession and speaking following the action he said:
It was a great day here at Mid-Ohio. Honda 1-6 and we were fortunate enough to be the first of those Hondas. The Gainbridge car was super-fast and has been fast all weekend. Luckily, we were in the right place at the right time to put the lap down and get the pole. I’m looking forward to the Honda Indy 200 and hopefully we can wrap up the race tomorrow and go away with the win.”
It was also a great day for Honda Performance Development for swept the Firestone Fast Six.
Speaking following the action, David Salters, President and Technical Director of HPD said:
Stunning job today by the marvelous people at HPD. Honda 1-6! I can’t even remember the last time we did that. It’s pretty impressive. Well done to our teams—we had three different Honda-powered teams represented in the top six in qualifying. Just a rather fine day at the office for the great team at HPD and great to put on a good show in front of so many other Honda employees watching around the track today.”
