Marco Overdrove His Qualifying Laps

Marco Andretti
NAPA Racing driver Alexander Rossi stole the show in qualifying today, on the way to his second career Verizon P1 Award. And while the No. 27 will start from the front for the 85-lap race, penalties and misfortune struck the remaining Andretti drivers during qualifying for the Grand Prix of Long Beach.

No. 98 U.S. CONCRETE / CURB HONDA DRIVEN BY MARCO ANDRETTI
  • STARTING POSITION: 20th
  • QUALIFYING TIME: 1:08.5294
  • OF NOTE: After recovering from mechanical issues Friday, spun in Turn 1 during the first round of qualifying resulting in a penalty an the loss of the 98’s fastest lap
“I made a mistake pushing too hard into (Turn 1) and ended up in the runoff. Once we flat spotted the tires, we didn’t really have hopes of a faster lap. It’s on me and that is going to make it hard to sleep tonight. We were riddled with an issue yesterday and the whole crew worked really hard last night to get to the bottom of it and correct it. We kind of started from scratch this morning and I think we headed in the right direction. I think the U.S. Concrete / Curb car had the pace to advance. Starting 20th doesn’t show our true pace or the true talents of the 98 team.”

TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
