Below, are a few other quick notes.
–Pretty nice day here in Baltimore.
–Jack Hawksworth won the pole for the Indy Lights race
–James Jakes has gone to a sixth engine and will take a ten grid spot penalty after qualifying.
–Look for Luca Fillipi to have a strong session. He is in the easier of the two groups, has been fast all weekend, and we hear he thinks the red Firestone tires suit him well.
–The chicane and bumps surrounding it, which have seen a few drivers get airbone is the biggest topic of discussion around here.
–We'll have more after qualifying.
