Will Power in the No.12 Verizon 5G Team Penske CHevrolet says that the Nashville street circuit is physical. The Australian, who is the defending series champion, was the pacesetter in the opening practice session for Sunday’s Big Machine Music City Grand Prix and speaking.after setting a 01:16.4042s he commented saying:
“It’s physical. After that first round, why would I say it’s not physical? But, it’s physical. Man, it’s physical.”
Speaking about his brush with the wall
I just locked on the way in, thought I was going to make it. Just did it really, I mean, it didn’t knock the suspension off but it was enough to, yeah. It’s not ideal.
Concluding about the pace of the car he said:
“The car is really good. I think we’re in a good window. I think all of the cars are pretty similar. It’ll be about putting it all together when it counts.”
Scott McLaughlin the No.3 DEX Imaging Chevrolet ended the day in ninth place and speaking following the action he commented saying:
“Pretty warm day here in Nashville, but overall the DEX Imaging Chevy felt pretty good. Just didn’t get a run on the green (alternate) tires, and had plenty of red flags at the end, but it feels just as good as last year which is a good thing. Car is really nice, so hopefully we can come back stronger tomorrow.”
