Q2

Surprisingly, Penske’s # 12 crew had a power outage in time for the second quarter, turning the fourth fastest lap in the primary, and AMSP also repaired the Pato O’Ward car.

However, the first driver to enter the 68’s in the red was Elio Castroneves of Meyer Shank Racing. After that, he lost to Romain Grosjean in 68.1776 seconds and 0.35 seconds to Simon Pagenaud.

Things turned into a mess at the end of the session when the Power car was suffering from a gear shift-arguably the result of a previous shock with Harvey-and he brushed the wall on Turn 9. The two long beach winners stopped on turn 10 and urged the local yellow. Scott Dixon, Felix Rosenqvist, James Hinchcliffe and Ed Jones seemed to have improved their times, apparently against the rules, as Power himself discovered in qualifying at Laguna Seca.

In fact, only Jones was punished. It greatly influenced the frustration of Taylor Kiel and O’Ward, the presidents of the AMSP team.

Therefore, Fast Six was set up in Grosjean, Rosenqvist, Castroneves, New Garden, Pagenaud and Dixon.

Q1 Group 2

Colton Herta set the fastest time on the primary tires and seemed to want to save the red set to Firestone Fast Six, as he did in Nashville, avoiding two extra laps. Unfortunately, he couldn’t compare the advantage of enough pace to make it work this time to his opponents, and he honed the wall when he went out late for the primary. It left him time for only one leaflet in red, and it seemed that the left rear toe had given up, so he fell seventh.

However, with Felix Rosenqvist at the top of the group ahead of Simon Pagenaud and Hélio Castroneves, the incident between Dale Coyne Racing’s fourth-placed Romain Grosjean and RWR was Rahal. -There was news that we were investigating the case with Oliver Askew of Letterman Lanigan. However, the fastest driver on the weekend was Askew, not Grosjean, who was penalized for losing the fastest lap on two laps, so there was no amnesty.

“We were trying to save the set [of reds] Hopefully for Fast Six, “Hertha said. “We had enough time to do four [laps on blacks] And two [laps on reds], Everyone did it, I thought it was the best [strategy].. I thought black was 4th and red was 2nd, but unfortunately I hit the wall and broke the link on my left toe, so I didn’t know.

“It was a handful in the end … well, it was bent until it broke. Unfortunately, it was my fault.

“But it will be an interesting race. Start 14NS, There are 2 sets of new reds, so it might be a good thing. I will charge the front desk tomorrow. “

When asked if he could win the race, he replied, “There will be a lot of yellows and restarts in this race, and there is no doubt that there will be great cars.”

Hertha’s teammates James Hinchcliffe and Ed Jones succeeded in a second coin car.

Callum Ilott was also the ninth fastest time for Yunkos Holinger, praising all three AJ Foyt racing cars and Ed Carpenter Racing’s Linus Vikay ahead of Askew.

Q1 Group 1

Alex Palou had an amazing moment on his primary tires on Turn 9 and brushed his walls on Turn 4, but was the third black man to follow Alexander Rossi and Scott Dixon, ahead of Josef Newgarden and Willpower. I went fast. ‘Ward. After that, all 14 drivers pitted in Firestone’s replacement tires.

Scott McLaughlin set the first strong flyer red before power before Parrow robbed both. After that, New Garden topped the session with 68.6705 seconds and trimmed to 68.5080 seconds at the top of the session. He was in front of Dixon and Parrow’s Ganassi car.

When Jak Ali Harvey hit the tires hard on Turn 8, Red flew in dying seconds. The blind power then passed and clipped the Meyer Shank Racing Honda, supporting the damage to the left rear suspension and the broken wings. Until the second quarter of the lap time, the # 12 crew was in a hurry to make sure their car was ready. They were helped by the need to retrieve Harvey’s car and reload the tires.

O’Ward was fourth fastest, but he had to bend his left rear toe at the wall exiting Turn 4 and the # 5 crew of the Aroma McLaren SP had to make a major correction to the pit lane. Hunter-Reay was sixth fastest, but Alexander Rossi, who won twice at Long Beach, wasn’t.

Jimmie Johnson was impressive within 1.8 seconds of the fastest time.
