Track Record Teeters as Grosjean Leads at Long Beach

Cooler temperatures led to hot times during practice for the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach on Saturday morning, as the track record should be in jeopardy during NTT P1 Award qualifying this afternoon after a quick lap from Romain Grosjean. Grosjean led the session with a top lap of 1 minute, 5.6520 seconds in the No. The top nine drivers in practice Saturday all were quicker than Castroneves’ qualifying track record. Much like the 45-minute practice Friday, today’s session was eventful under the Southern California sunshine. Herta nudged his rear wing against the concrete barrier 15 minutes into the session after spinning while exiting Turn 6. 48 Carvana Chip Ganassi Racing Honda nosed into the Turn 1 tire barrier with 13 minutes left in the session.
