JOURDAIN JR. QUALIFIES 25TH

Mexican driver Michel Jourdain Jr. was 25th in the first qualifying session for the Molson Indy event. Michel brushed the wall in the early minutes at the track and this damaged his car.

Michel Jourdain Jr., Car # 19 Herdez-Viva Mexico! Team: "At the exit to the pit straight, I brushed the wall and bent the rear right toe link. The crew tried to fix the problem, but something was still wrong, since I could not center the steering wheel."

Antonio Marron, Motorsports Director of the Herdez-Viva Mexico! Team: "We have a lot of work to do on the car to improve the balance. Unfortunately, Michel hit the wall in the early minutes and after that the car was not the same."
