Christian Lundgaard in the No.45 Hy-Vee Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing Honda had a great opening day at the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix on the streets of Nashville as he ended the day in fifth place and speaking after setting a fastest time of 01:16.9262 and speaking following the action he commented saying:

Being one of the first cars out on track, we obviously expected the track to be slippery. But at the end we were still competitive but we should’ve been more competitive. We didn’t really get our lap on the (alternate) greens when we should have. The lap before, I think, was 4/10ths up on the lap I ended up doing but I had (Scott) McLaughlin sideways down in Turn 4 so it wasn’t going to be that lap (that was his fastest). But I do think we’re competitive and we carried over from last year. It’s looking good for the Hy-Vee team.”

Graham Rahal in the No.15 Fifth Third Bank Honda ended the day in 15th place and speaking following the action he commented saying:

“I thought we were decent in practice. After the first runs, we were in the top 6-7-8 there for a while. A bunch of guys went a little quicker as the session went on but it was a shame that we didn’t get a clear lap on the alternate tire. I don’t know what it (typically faster alternate tire) had in it. Some guys went a lot quicker; some guys went no quicker. We had an axle boot issue too which is abnormal. We will see what the Fifth Third Bank Honda has in it tomorrow.”

JACK HARVEY, 45 Kustom Entertainment Dallara/Honda/Firestone ended the day in 21st place and speaking following the action he commented saying:

“We started out with a ton of bottoming and that kind of hurt the first few runs so I wasn’t super happy with that. On the alternate tires, we hit a little bit of traffic with Josef I guess. It’s going to be fine. Our setup is nothing to write home about yet but not awful so we will see.”
