Colton Herta pulverized the track record by nearly a second to win the NTT P1 Award for the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach on Saturday, leading three Andretti Autosport cars in the Firestone Fast Six. Southern California native Herta’s top lap was 1 minute, 5.3095 in the No. The series didn’t race in California in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Josef Newgarden will join Herta in the front row after his top lap of 1:05.7550 in the No. So, drivers had the option to complete one more flying lap to attempt to topple Herta. Herta was safe atop the heap, as all five drivers with official laps in the Firestone Fast Six were quicker than Castroneves’ track record from five years ago. In fact, 11 of the 26 drivers who turned qualifying laps today were quicker than Castroneves’ record. “There’s no reason why we can’t come through in the race.
