WILL POWER, NO. 1 VERIZON TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET – POLE WINNER and HELIO CASTRONEVES, NO. 3 HITACHI TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET – SECOND PLACE QUALIFIER POST QUALIFYING QUOTES:
WILL POWER, NO. 1 VERIZON TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET – POLE WINNER: HOW DID THE TRACK FEEL TO YOU OUT THERE? “It’s actually quite fun. The cement is a bit more slippery and you get to move the car around a little bit more and I think they did a great job of this whole circuit. Man it is brutal when you’ve got to pump out laps here because it’s gotten real technical, but it’s a lot of fun.”
YOUR TEAMMATES WERE CHASING YOU ALL THE WAY TO THAT FIRESTONE FAST SIX, ITS GOT TO BE GOOD TO TAKE THAT DIG BACK AT THEM AND SAY, ‘HEY, I GOT THE POLE’ ISN’T IT? “Yeah, it’s the pole but it’s a long race around here. But yes, once again it’s about battling the teammates around here and we have all year. It’s been a great weekend and a really good start. We will try and keep ourselves out of trouble and see what magic we can do tomorrow. I had new tires so I was pushing hard. Then they said Helio and Juan were pretty close. I made a couple of mistakes and the car was pretty loose. But overall it’s a fantastic job and a good start to the weekend.”
HELIO CASTRONEVES, NO. 3 HITACHI TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET – QUALIFIED 2ND: “The Hitachi Penske car was really good actually. We used new tires in the second stint and (Will) didn’t, so they used new tires on the third round and we didn’t. So that’s how amazing our car was. That’s why I’m so happy. For being that close with tires that already had a run on them, it was absolutely amazing. The Hitachi boys did an awesome job. I wanted that pole position pretty badly, so let’s go for the race tomorrow.
“The most important thing is the race. It was a good battle today between me, Will and the rest of Team Penske. Let’s go for tomorrow and see what happens.”
