Q1 Group 2

In the primaries, Will Power Pinske had the fastest lead, clocking 1 minute 15.5796 seconds, ahead of Arrow McLaren SP Chevy, Pato Award, Scott McLaughlin, Christian Lundgaard before everyone else raced for alternates. Power then lowered his time by half a second, but that wasn’t enough to stop McLaughlin from shadowing him by 0.037 seconds, before Power set 1 minute 14.7460 and moved on. McLaughlin also dipped in 14.7 seconds and pitted, while Lundgaard and Graham Rahal ensured all three of Rahal Letterman Lanigan’s cars advanced into the second quarter, looking at least as powerful as they had in Toronto.

Romain Grosjean became the only Andretti Autosport-Honda to graduate, while Pato O’Ward’s Arrow McLaren SP-Chevy succeeded. Those who did not include contenders for the Ganassi title Scott Dixon And the Marcus EricssonHusband split Kyle Kirkwood who was disappointed not to succeed after he was fifth fastest in second training.

Q1 Group 1

With six minutes left Devlin de FrancescoA car stopped at Turn 4, causing a red light and thus eliminating himself from qualifying. This came before anyone put up a meaningful run in the primaries, which then prompted everyone to dig out on replacement tires – a green sidewall was put in place for the event to signify the fact that Firestone had constructed the sidewalls from guayule, a sustainable plant.

With one minute left, the battle for the lead between Joseph Newgarden, Alex Ballou and Colton Hart, but then last year’s automaker Herta closed in on Turn 4 and slid into the tire wall. His car stopped, and that raised the red flag again. That session ended, leaving two potential Firestone Fast Six contenders – a teammate Alexander Rossi And the Felix Rosenqvist Unable to graduate after not having a representative appointment.

Those who made it to the second quarter were Alex Palou (Ganassi-Honda), Jack Harvey (Rahal Letterman Lanigan-Honda), David Malukas (Dale Coyne Racing with HMD-Honda), Josef Newgarden (Penske-Chevrolet), and Rinus VeeKay (Ed Carpenter Racing-Chevrolet) and for the first time ever – Dalton Kellett of AJ Foyt Racing-Chevrolet.
