Points leader Will Power had the fastest lkap in the only practice before qualifying for ther Bommarito 500. Power’slap of 180.539 was 0.04sweconds faster than Alex Palou. Felix Rosenqvist finished third.
The five top drivers in nthe points had laps good enough for the top 10. Qualifying begins at 3:15 Central time, followed by a practice at 6:00 PM.
Qualifying order is determinbed by entrant points. I still think qualifying order for each oval should be determined by results of the practice just before qualifying.
