Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing’s Jack Harvey in the No.30 PeopleReady Honda was 13th fastest on Carb Day on Friday with a speed of 225.251MPH and speaking following the action he commented saying:

There were a few things we wanted to try. I think the weather is going to be much hotter on race day and I think our cars have been great in the hot conditions so Carb Day was really about us trying to step through a set of progressions we are anticipating having to go through the race with. Actually, in the end, I was pretty happy with the balance at the end. Because of how qualifying weekend went, we were a little limited on tires but did the best we could with what we had and think we ended in a pretty good spot so im very optimistic that we’ll go forward in the race. The No. 30 PeopleReady car has been through a month. Miss Moneypenny deserves some love for sure. We’re going to hopefully pouring milk over her in two days time.”

Katherine Legge in the No.44 Hendrickson Honda ended the session in 29th place with a speed of 223.563MPH and speaking following the action she said:

The team has done an awesome job of getting the car back together and in a pretty raceable shape. Although we didn’t get to run the whole session and do practice pit stops, I think we’re in good shape for Sunday. When I left pit lane everything seemed fine and I went through Turn 1 and it was okay and then into Turn 2, I sort of felt a wobble and thought I had a loose tire. Then the wobble got worse and I realized it probably wasn’t smart to try and it bring it back to pit lane. Unfortunately, we had to pull off and I think it’s broken through the threads on the hub.”

Christian Lundgaard in the No.45 Hy-Vee Honda ended the day in 25th place with a speed of 223.996MPH and speaking following the action he commented saying:

Carb Day is done and we struggled a little more than we did Monday but I think the car is in a decent window. There is room for improvement but I think we’ve got a better package than the qualifying package was for sure so I guess we’ll see how that pans out on race day. I’m excited for my second Indy 500 and first in the Hy-Vee Honda.”
