Arrow McLaren SP’s Pato O’Ward in the No.5 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet will start Sunday’s REV Group Grand Prix of Road America from tenth place on the grid after setting a time of 01:46.1069s and speaking following the action he said:

We just haven’t found the right balance since practice one. “We were OK with the cooler temperatures this morning, but any time it gets a little bit warmer, we’re not in the window.”

“We qualified 10th and haven’t been in the window to extract everything out of the No. 5 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet. This has been tough, as the track has been evolving and changing. We didn’t roll off the truck as strong as we wanted to so we have been working on the car changing things, and I don’t think we’ve found the solution yet. Hopefully we can get it figured out overnight and have a good race tomorrow. I think there might be some rain coming in which could add a cool twist to the race, because we are kind of in a situation where it might help us. We will see what we have tomorrow.”

Kevin Magnussen in the No.7 Vuse Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet will make his NTT IndyCar Series debut from 21st place with a time of 01:47.7886s and speaking following the action he said:

“First qualifying done in INDYCAR. It didn’t really go as well as I’d hoped for but I think it’s hard to have too high of expectations when you have less than 20 laps in the car before qualifying. I think there’s a few things to look at for tomorrow and hopefully I can find some more speed and do some fighting in the race.”

Arrow McLaren SP President, Taylor Kiel commented saying:

“It was a long day, it was a tough day. I think this is the most practice that we’ve had all season so there’s a lot of opportunity to make the cars better or worse depending on what changes we make. It’s all about maximizing the day and we didn’t quite do that today. I think we left some on the table in qualifying, a couple mistakes here and there cost us a couple tenths which unfortunately is a lot in this series. So, a lot of work to do tomorrow no doubt, but we’ll make it better overnight and try to maximize tomorrow for Arrow McLaren SP.”
