Chip Ganassi Racing’s Alex Palou in the No.10 The American Legion Honda who can win his second NTT INDYCAR SERIES championship this weekend in Portland says the car rolled off really good on Friday.
The Spainard who is 74 points ahead of his teammate Scott Dixon going into Sunday’s race was third fastest while Scott Dixon struggled and ended the session in 19th place.
Taking to Twitter on Saturday morning, Palou said:
Love this track! 🤩
Great start to our weekend with Practice yesterday. Car rolled off really good, just need couple more tweaks before qualifying! 👊

Palou’s strategist Barry Wanser was diagnosed with skin cancer earlier this season and underwent surgery on Wednesday.
Chip Ganassi Racing team manager Mike O’Gara will move across from Marcus Ericsson’s stand to fill in for Wasner for the final two races of the season.
