Chip Ganassi Racing’s Linus Lundqvist in the No.8 Be The One American Legion Honda says that his maiden NTT P1 Award at Road America on Saturday is a good step forward for him and the No.8 team.

Speaking to Paddock Eye following qualifying, Lundqvist said:

I mean, it definitely helps. It definitely helps. We’ll see. I did mention as well earlier that Saturdays and qualifying has been the focus of mine. I know that’s where we struggled kind of in the first five or six races here. It feels good to do this.

I know it wasn’t a very conventional qualifying session, but either way I’m going to take it as a step forward. Hopefully we can just build on this confidence. Again, points are being handed out tomorrow. Firstly, it’s going to be the focus on that. Either way, it’s a good step forwards for us on Saturdays.

It was a great day for Chip Ganassi Racing as the team had all five cars in the Firestone Fast 12.

Marcus Armstrong, who scored his first INDYCAR SERIES podium last weekend in Detroit starts Sunday’s race from third and speaking following the action he said:

We had a good session in the wet, honestly. I wish we could’ve done another lap once the track started drying out, but it’s still a great result for us.
