PRACTICE RESULT–8th

PRACTICE TIME–1:09.6276

“Solid start for the 29 car. Andretti Steinbrenner rolled off the truck with a really good car. It’s tough out there with 28 cars on a short track; it’s really hard to get a lap. I think I only went through Turn 9 at speed once with everyone backing up and trying to get gaps. But the Capstone car is strong. I think there’s maybe a couple places we can maybe make it a little better and hopefully we’re still in a good spot for tomorrow.”

The streets of Long Beach were busy today as the NTT INDYCAR SERIES ran the day’s sole practice session. With 28 cars and just 45 minutes of practice on the tight street course, the session was broken up by flags with no car running more than 22 laps. The Andretti stable rolled off the trucks strong and put a best foot forward with all four cars holding the top four spots late in the session, and all finishing the day inside the top nine.

Saturday will bring one more practice followed by qualifying, all with coverage on NBC’s Peacock.

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