No. 28 INDEX INVEST DALLARA
  • STARTING POSITION: 3rd
  • QUALIFYING TIME: 01:16.7916
  • OF NOTE: Finished the first practice session of the day on top of the time sheets
      "I think we are gonna start both races and win the championship, so I think it's pretty much over as long as the engine starts. It was a difficult session for us for sure. I was surprised on how much the track changed, so we will definitely debrief and look at the data and hope for a better run in the morning. It looks like will be starting third now so that’s not too bad here."

       

      No. 27 CYBERSECURITY DALLARA
      • STARTING POSITION: 4th
      • QUALIFYING TIME: 01:16.8760
      • OF NOTE: Claimed the second-fastest time in this morning's practice session
          "Qualifying was so-so. We’re starting P4, which isn’t bad, but there was a lot more in the car. I think we made a lot of bad choices with the set up and I think we got to the peak of the tire. Then Dalton [Kellett] spun and ruined everyone else’s qualifying session. So we will show up tomorrow and be better in the morning."

           

          No. 48 THREE CHORD DALLARA
          • STARTING POSITION: 7th
          • QUALIFYING TIME: 01:17.4388
          • OF NOTE: Was caught out by a red flag with less than a minute to go in the session while on his flying lap // Rounded out the top three in this morning's Practice 1
              "Qualifying for Race 1 didn’t go as planned. We were loose in first practice session this morning. Then we were on the flying lap in Qualifying when we had a red flag come out, so we are just going to have to move forward to tomorrow."
