Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing’s Graham Rahal says it was a really good day for his No.15 United Rentals Honda crew as he ended the day with 127 laps under his belt and the 14th fastest speed of the day with a 224.813MPH and speaking following the action he said:

It was actually a really good day for the No. 15 United Rentals boys. I think we did a great job kind of going back and resetting overnight and trying not to overreact to the challenges that we faced yesterday. Today the car was significantly better. We focused 100% on race stuff today so I know there’s some guys out there doing qual sims and kind of seeing what their pace was. We will do that tomorrow. Today we focused on just trying to get the racecar better and I’m glad to say that we did. We’re excited for what’s ahead.

Takuma Sato in the No.30 Panasonic PeopleReady Honda ended the day with the 20th fastest time with a speed of 224.057MPH and speaking following the action the defending Indianapolis 500 winner commented saying:

I think it was a good day again, we learned a lot. We did qualifying simulations, still with lower boost but we can learn so many fundamental things. Then the group runs were very strong. You know if you have a lot of downforce you can carry in a good speed but then when you get to lead the race its difficult. We learned tons, I’m sure Santino and Graham gathered great data too so we shall see at the end of the day meeting and hopefully we can move another step forward for tomorrow.

Santino Ferrucci in the No.45 Hy-Vee Honda ended the day with a speed of 219.088MPH and speaking following the action he commented saying:

Another day done. We got back out for the last 15 minutes to check things out. It was a solid day – a lot of learning. We definitely found out a couple of things about the car, things we like and things we don’t like but we’re ready to come back strong tomorrow.
