Team Penske’s Josef Newgarden in the No.2 PPG Chevrolet says that the car feels really good as the defending Mid-Ohio race winner led the times on Friday, the opening of track action ahead of Sunday’s Honda Indy 200.

Speaking following the action he said:

The car feels really good. “I think the (temperatures) definitely made the trap speed low, and it felt very difficult to drive the car today to bring it up to temperature.

“I’m relatively happy. I think our car was good off the truck.”

David Malukas was the fastest rookie for Dale Coyne Racing with HMD as he ended the session in eighth with a time of 1:07.5361s.

Speaking following the action he said:

Everything from our end, I think it was very good. “From start to end of that session it was good. Mid-Ohio is so special, because every time you go out on track, it feels completely different, and track conditions to start the session were very tough to say the least.”
