Arrow McLaren’s Kyle Larson in the No.17 Chevrolet was happy with his how his Fast Friday went as he ended the day in second place overall and speaking after setting a fastest speed of 234.271MPH the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series champion said:

“I think our car balance was in a comfortable spot that allowed me to be a little bit calmer in the car. If I went out there and felt on the limit of the rear tires, I would have felt like I was probably going a lot faster. I think they did a good job to deal with the balance and keeping me comfortable.”

Alexander Rossi in the No.7 VELO Chevrolet was fifth fastest overall with a speed of 234.006MPH and speaking following his afternoon of action the 201t6 Indianapolis 500 winner said:

“It was a good Fast Friday. I always love when we get to turn up the boost around here. I think the car is very close. It’s competitive as always out there, but I think we have the ability to fight for it tomorrow.”

Pato O’Ward says it was a rollercoaster as he ended the day in seventh place with a fastest speed of 233.748MPH and speaking following the action he commented saying:

Callum Ilott was 14th and speaking following the action he commented saying:

“We had a bit of a stronger finish to the day than the start. We built things up a lot the whole way through and had some good speed. Now, it’s just about unlocking it. I think we’ve got a better baseline for tomorrow than what we started with today. I’m looking forward to it.”
