No. 13 PDVSA HVM Racing Honda Dallara - E.J. Viso
Lap Time: 1:30.9274 total lap time
Speed: 160.744 miles per hour
Qualifying Position: 17th

HVM Racing will have the opportunity to make some moves through the field tomorrow, as the No. 13 PDVSA HVM Honda Dallara will start in the 17th position for the ABC Supply/AJ Foyt 225 at the Milwaukee Mile. E.J. Viso qualified the car Saturday afternoon with a total lap time of 1:30.9274 and an average speed of 160.744 miles per hour.

After posting a speed of 163.78 in the morning practice session, the team made some adjustments to try to make the car perform more consistently through all four turns of the one mile-oval. But when Viso went out in the fourth slot of afternoon qualifying, the car could not resume the pace, posting lap times of 23.0394, 22.6623, 22.5971 and 22.6285.

Viso has a history of passing from the back of the pack, so the 13 car will be one to watch on Sunday when the green flag drops at 3:50 ET.

Comments from HVM Racing Team Principal and Owner Keith Wiggins after qualifying at the Milwaukee Mile:

"We obviously don't want to qualify that far back, but we hope to make some changes to put a better car on the grid tomorrow and give E.J. a chance to move up. We have had some disappointing finishes this year, so we are definitely looking for a stronger run tomorrow."
