CM – Newgarden runs the second Road America practice

0

Josef Newgarden was quick early and late in the last practice session before qualifying, and thanks to this pace, the Penske driver drove the best lap of the 45-minute exit at Road America with a 1: 45.3399-minute Tour in the No. 2 Chevy.

In cooler temperatures than on Friday, Colton Herta from Andretti Autosport drove in the usual fast qualifying simulation laps on Firestone’s faster tires with red stripes P2 in the Honda No. 26 (0.1331 seconds ) and Graham Rahal in P3 with the # 15 Rahal Letterman Lanigan Honda (0.1785s).

Newgarden was obviously pleased with the performance of his car but was concerned about the accelerated deterioration of the Firestone reds, which is about one were half a second faster than the more durable primaries on the 4.0 mile road course, but had a limited lifespan.

« I definitely think they’re falling off, » Newgarden said. “That’s a good keyword for this weekend. They are only profound; I don’t know what happened in the last 12 months, but there definitely seems to be a huge drop in grade which is challenging. I think it’s a lot of fun to watch because people will struggle with it. So we’ll see what we have this afternoon. ”

The rest of the top 6 consisted of Dale Coyne Racing with Romain Grosjean of Rick Ware Racing on P4 in the Honda # 51 (0.4301), the impressive Ed Carpenter Racing Rinus VeeKay replacement Oliver Askew on P5 with the No. 21 Chevy (0.4554 seconds) and Alex Palou from Chip Ganassi Racing in the Honda No. 10 (0.5237 seconds).

The only dramas in the meeting came from Cody Ware and a large piece of debris. For Ware, it was a spin and a standstill in the number 52 DCRwRWR Honda that spawned a red flag, and CGR’s Scott Dixon lost a significant portion of the session on P22 as something on the track under his number 9 Honda fell and destroyed part of the lower wing.
