Alex Palou in the No.10 American Legion Chip Ganassi Racing Honda says he was disappointed after missing out on the pole for the GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the IMS road course.

The Spaniard set the fastest time of 01:09.3780s and will start the race from third place on the grid and speaking following the action he commented saying:

“A bit disappointed that we didn’t get the pole. We were looking strong all day; P3 in Practice 1 and then P1 in Practice 2. We just missed it by a bit, but it’s good to be disappointed when you’re starting P3. The car feels great, just need to find a little bit more during the warm-up and try to get our first win of the season.”

Marcus Ericsson in the No.8 Huski Chocolate Honda starts the race from seventh place on the grid with a time of 01:09.4419s and speaking following the action he commented saying:

“It was a pretty good day. We had no rain, which we thought we were going to have. P7 for us in the Huski Chocolate Honda, and with the history for us here at the road course, it’s a good performance. We can definitely fight from there in the race tomorrow so it was overall a good day.”

Six-time series champion Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing Honda starts the race from ninth place with a time of 01:09.7811s and speaking following the action he commented saying:

“Today was okay. Bummed that we ended up ninth, five hundredths would have converted us to Q3. The positive is that it is a very red-dependent race. A lot of the Q3 guys that made runs on their reds are going to feel that tomorrow unless it rains. It could be an interesting day starting ninth. Pretty good day for the team and we made some good gains, but of course you want to be up top.”

Marcus Armstrong in the No.11 Ridgeline Lubcriants Honda starts the race from 11th place and speaking following the action he commented saying:

“It was an eventful day; A lot of running and a lot of track time. I think ultimately we had more pace, so honestly I’m disappointed. I don’t think I did a very good job in the last run and the car was capable of much more. That’s what it is, but tomorrow we are going to keep our nose clean and push forward in the race.”
