Ed Carpenter Racing’s Josef Newgarden in the No.21 Fuzzy’s Ultra Premium Vodka Chevrolet will start Sunday’s Verizon IndyCar Series season finale, GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma from 10th place.
Newgarden set a fastest time of 01:16.8142s and speaking following the session, he commented by saying:
We did a good job as a group getting a decent result in qualifying. It’s a good Top 10 starting spot. We would have liked more, I think everyone would have, but that’s ok! We’re still in a strong position to attack tomorrow. We’re still going to have a great racecar, we know how to build a fast racecar here. I have all the confidence that we’ll be quick and can capitalize from our starting spot!
Spencer Pigot in the No.21 Samsung Chevrolet starts the race from 19th place having set a fastest time of 01:17.3052s and speaking following the session he commented by saying:
The balance shifted more than we thought from black tires during practice to reds during qualifying. We did two sets of reds for our qualifying run. The first set was tricky; it was hard to get rear grip. The second set, we were just trying to put a lap together because we hadn’t had .a solid one on the first run. It was a tough session but we’ll give it a shot tomorrow during the race!
