Matsuura Qualifies Seventh in Kentucky

Kosuke Matsuura is off to a strong start for the Meijer Indy 300 at Kentucky Speedway on Sunday. Matsuura claimed his career-best starting position at the 1.5-mile oval with a seventh-place run this afternoon, and also set the sixth-fastest time overall at the end of 90 minutes of practice time. To date, Matsuura's best-ever IndyCar Series finish was at Kentucky Speedway with a strong drive to fourth place in 2004.

Matsuura has six top-10 finishes to date this season and, currently 25 points out of seventh in the championship, will be looking to make up some ground tomorrow.

Kosuke Matsuura, #55 Panasonic ARTA Dallara/Honda/Firestone:

"This track has really been a good track for our team, and our car seems to be quite good this weekend. Hopefully, we will be able to repeat and win this year as well. The Penske cars are strong here, but I think we have really good potential for the race."
