JOURDAIN JR. QUALIFIES 24TH

Herdez-Viva Mexico! driver Michel Jourdain Jr. will start from the 24th spot in the Molson Indy race at Toronto.

Michel Jourdain Jr., Car # 19 Herdez-Viva Mexico! Team: "The car has a lot of push and when I brake, the car goes up in the rear. So, I can't brake too much. I've got caught up in traffic in key moments and that affected me too."

Antonio Marron, Motorsports Director of the Herdez-Viva Mexico! Team: "I think we could be in better positions, but the traffic affected Michel's performance, like when Robby Gordon was exiting the pits not slowing his pace when Michel passed by there. Also, on the last lap, Alex Barron slowed Michel's pace. Sometimes qualifying is a matter of luck, if you get in the traffic everything is more complicated."
