Christian Lundgaard in the No.45 Hy-Vee RLL Honda was 10th faster in the opening practice session ahead of Sunday’s Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach. Lundgaard ended the day with a time of 01:07.3237s and speaking following the action he said:

Practice one done here at Long Beach. It was a little interesting at the beginning. We did have a few issues with our ride. Yeah, we struggled with that. But in the end, we finished P10 which is great, I think. There’s definitely more time to gain in the lap time so it’s something we need to dig into and understand and we’ll find out.”

Jack Harvey in the No.30 Kustom Entertainment Honda ended the day in 12th place with a time of 01:07.3864s and speaking following the action he commented saying:

Practice 1 for us was not too bad in truth. I felt like the car’s got potential which I felt like it was going to have coming into the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach. We’ve got work to do still but I’m very optimistic that at least it feels like this weekend we’ve moved our baseline of our car further forward. We’ve got the usual amount of work to do but hopefully it’s going to be just further to the front. So far, so good for the No. 30 Kustom Entertainment car. Just want to keep that momentum going all weekend.”

Graham Rahal in the No.15 United Rentals Honda recovered from an early spin to finish the session in P16 and speaking following the action he commented saying:

It was a solid start here in Long Beach. On the first run we were P4 ultimately, I think, but I messed up the last two or three corners and lost two-and-a-half-tenths and we were tracking to be P1 before that. On the second new tire run, we didn’t actually get a run. We have some improvement to do, we made one change in particular that didn’t work well so we have to think about how to skin that cat tonight but so far so good for the No. 15 United Rentals Honda.”
