Herta Continues Rookies’ Great Weekend; Weather Update

Colton Herta led the morning warm-up session. The Andretti cars seemed to have found some speed. Marco Andretti was 6th, Zach Veach 10th, Alexander Rossi 10th, and Ryan Hunter-Reay 12th.

Pole sitter Felix Rosenqvist finished 9th in the session. Defending race winner Will Power was 13th. Max Chilton was the fastest Chevy in 7th. I can’t remember a weekend when Team Penske cars weren’t the fastest Chevys.  Josef Newgarden led the team in 8th.

Pato O’ Ward didn’t turn a lap and his car went back to the garage during the session.

Weather

A brief rain shower is expected in the area in a few minutes.  I have received reports of moisture in turns 6A and 7.

The latest radar has rain coming after 5:30.

Back with another update when tire choices come out.
