VeeKay Vaults to Top of Pre-Qualifying Practice at Barber

Rinus VeeKay jumped to the top of the speed charts during pre-qualifying practice for the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama presented by AmFirst on Saturday morning at Barber Motorsports Park. VeeKay’s best lap was 1 minute, 5.9264 seconds in the No. 21 SONAX Chevrolet fielded by Ed Carpenter Racing, the quickest lap of the weekend so far after two practice sessions. It was a significant improvement from his best practice lap Friday, 1:07.1155, good for 10th overall. Pato O’Ward was second quickest after a best lap of 1:06:0136 in the No. Colton Herta, quickest Friday, again was the top Honda with a quick lap of 1:06.0434 in the No. Romain Grosjean joined Andretti Autosport teammate Herta in the top five with his best lap of 1:06.2170 in the No. His teammate, 2016 Indy 500 winner Alexander Rossi, wasn’t as lucky during his incident.
