Chip Ganassi Racing’s six-time series champion Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda ended the opening day of track action at Barber Motorsports Park in fourth place with a time of 01:06.9345s and speaking following the track action the Iceman, who is yet to win here, commented saying:

“The second run was pretty good, we got caught up in some red flags, so we didn’t get a clean run on the first one, but second run we went to the top of the charts on the black tires which was really good. I think we were 1, 2, 3, for the team which was pretty good and then we had some cautions, a couple of changes, and then went out with the reds with literally 3 or 4 minutes to go. The car has great speed so hopefully we can continue that through the weekend.”

Championship leader Marcus Ericsson in the No.8 Huski Chocolate Honda ended the day in fifth place with a time of 01:06.9994s and speaking following the action, the Swede commented saying:

“The car feels good. I think we’re all off strong again, the Ganassi cars and the team have done a good job. We went through some setup changes that we wanted to complete and then we got on the reds there at the end, which is always fun. We’re in the mix.”

Alex Palou in the No.10 RIdgeline Lubricants Honda ended the day in tenth place with a time of 01:07.1678s and speaking following the action he commented saying:

“Barber is such a good place – I love driving an Indycar around here. It was good – it was really productive, tested a lot of stuff but still lots of work to do tomorrow in practice 2, getting it ready for qualifying. Things looking good so far.”

Marcus Armstrong in the No.11 The American Legion Honda ended the day in P17 with a time of 01:07.4770s and speaking following the action the New Zealander commented saying:

“The session was good at the beginning – towards the end it was the old classic traffic jam but it was okay. I guess we just circulated, we got through some test items and practice makes perfect doesn’t it? So just trying to get those laps in, hopefully tomorrow is a bit cleaner.”
