With the lone Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires practice session on the streets of Toronto complete the team shifts focus to qualifying Saturday morning for Race 1 later in the afternoon.

Oliver Askew Finished the day first overall with a best lap time of 1:06.5555
“It was a good first session – we ended up P1. I think there is still a little left in the car but we were on pace right away so we didn’t have many issues at all. The track is very green right now and we’re going to be about three seconds quicker in qualifying tomorrow, so it is going to be hard to make the right decision for the car. Luckily, these guys at Andretti Autosport have a ton of experience from years prior so we’re probably going to have to rely on that more than anything to keep up with the changing track positions. I feel good, car feels good and I’m looking forward to tomorrow."
