Ed Carpenter Racing’s Rinus Veekay in the No.21 Sonax Autogeek Chevrolet is excited to be making his street course NTT IndyCar Series race debut from ninth place with a time of 01:00.8837s and speaking ahead of the race he commented saying:
That was a little stressful between sessions. I had a really good lap to advance. In Round 2, I made a little correction in the las t corner, which cost me about a tenth of a second. I think I could have made it if that didn’t happen, but that’s racing. Starting ninth is still pretty good . I’m happy with the SONAX Chevy, and I cannot wait to send it tomorrow.”
Conor Daly in the No.20 U/S Air Force Chevrolet will start the race from 14th place with a time of 01:01.1609s and speaking following the action he commented saying:
An interesting qualifying session for us. We thought we were in, we didn’t know we were in, we didn’t know we were out, and then we were out. We’re starting 14th, which is OK. We need a little but more out of the car, and I need to deliver the right information to help us get there. We can have a good day tomorrow, for sure. We just have to stay in the fight, move forward and use some good strategy. We have definitely made progress with the U.S. Air Force Chevrolet, and I am looking forward to tomorrow!
