Charlie Kimball in the No.23 Fiap Chevrolet said he had a bittersweet feeling after the Californian qualified 20th for the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on Saturdsy while his team mates Max Chilton and Patricio O’Ward will battle it out today for a place on the final row.

Speaking after posting a speed of 227.915MPH, Kimball said:

It’s a little bit bittersweet to be qualified for the 103rd Running of the Indianapolis 500 knowing that my two teammates are fighting for their spot in the race tomorrow, but I’m very happy with how the No. 23 Fiasp Carlin Chevrolet ran today. I think we could’ve ran even faster if we went out again, but once we knew we were in the show, we shifted all of our focus onto helping Pato (O’Ward) and Max (Chilton) make it into the top 30, and ultimately, the starting lineup for next weekend’s race. We want to do anything we can to help them out tomorrow, and once that’s done, we’ll continue our work on making our race car the best it can possibly be starting tomorrow afternoon during practice.”
