Christian Lundgaard in the No.45 Hy-Vee Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing Honda was seventh fastest in practice for the Iowa doubleheader this weekend. The Toronto winner set a fastest speed of 174.364MPH and speaking following the action he commented saying:

We finished P7 in the only practice session, which was great for the No 45 Hy-Vee Honda. At the beginning of the session, I thought the car was a little out of the window but we dialed it in which is always positive. We will see how qualifying goes tomorrow and if we can nail two laps in a row and have two consistent qualifying laps. Then we will see how it goes the rest of the weekend. High hopes for now.”

Jack Harvey in the No.30 HUB International Honda was 11th with a speed of 173.698MPH and speaking following the action, the Englishman said:

I think the practice session was good, I’m pretty happy with the No. 30 HUB International Honda. I feel like we can have great qualifying tomorrow and that’s not trying to find optimism, that’s just how I feel. The car is in a good window to try and make it happen. I thought we had pretty good progress for the session. We probably didn’t unload how I would have but we stuck at it, worked through it and I’m hoping for a good day.”

Graham Rahal in the No.15 Blue Compass RV Honda was 20th with a speed of 171.892MPH and speaking following the action he commented saying:

“Our only practice of the weekend here was a pretty average practice for me. I didn’t think we had as much pace as I would’ve liked to see and I didn’t think we had as much lateral grip as I was expecting. I think our tire degradation is good in the long run but is concerning a little bit with pace. We’ve got some work to do tonight. Qualifying is at 8:30 a.m. so it will be interesting to just go out and throw it around and see what we’ve got. Certainly, we’ve got a little bit of work to be solid and get the Blue Compass RV car to the front.”
