Juncos Hollinger Racing Team owner Ricardo Juncos says that anything can happen later today at The Thermal Club following a solid qualifying for the team whi have both Romain Grosjean and Agustin Canapino in Heat 1.

We just finished the qualifying here at Thermal Club. It was very crazy, a lot of winds coming through, a lot of dust on the tracks, so very inconsistent lap times. It was quite difficult. We are starting P7 and P8 in the first race tomorrow. It’s a race that we have to finish in the top 6 to advance to the final. Anything can happen here, but it’s very fun, so I hope the fans around the world can enjoy the show. We are going to try our best”.

In only his second race for the team, Romain Grosjean starts seventh and speaking following the action he said:

“Thermal $1,000,000 challenge! We know the qualifying was going to be a challenge. Very tricky conditions out there. I made a small mistake in my lap that cost us. But we are up there in the mix, so a lot of potential in the car”.

Agustin Canapino starts the race just ahead of six-time NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Scott Dixon in eighth place and speaking following the action on Saturday he said:

We finished P8 in our group. It was a good run. Unfortunately, we did a lap on the last part of the qualifying window. We found the track really dirty at the end of the lap. The practice was better, but anyway, we are in a good position for tomorrow and we are going to try to advance the All Star race”.
