Led the Andretti pack in morning Race 1 qualifying, laying down a fastest lap of 1:05.8413 to start fourth in front of his hometown crowd
“It’s disappointing where we finished and all the circumstances that led to that. Overall, I know we had a car that was on rails for the first seven or eight laps and I felt really confident that we were going to be able to make up some spots after the restart. I think we had something for Santi (Urrutia). I’m a little frustrated but I think we are going to have a strong car tomorrow for qualifying and do it again during the race tomorrow. It’s always a good confidence booster when you’re able to run guys down during the race and you know you are faster them. I think we definitely have a car that’s going to let us to drive forward, so I’m looking forward to tomorrow.”
