Our Cly-Del Manufacturing car has been good all day and in practice yesterday,” said Ferrucci. “I don’t know what quite went wrong for us in qualifying today, but we have something much stronger than what our qualifying result shows. The second you go through Turns 1 and 2 the first time, and the car is doing something you’re not quite expecting you just want to hold on and finish your run and keep it in one piece. That’s just what we did. Now there’s nothing we can do but race and I’m confident we have a good race car for tomorrow night.
