IndyCar: Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach – Qualifying Results

 

Ryan Hunter-Reay qualified second for the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach in 2010, ’11 and ’13 with one victory to represent the efforts. On April 13, he’ll start the 40th annual race on the temporary street circuit from the inside of the front row.

 

Hunter-Reay earned the Verizon P1 Award by pipping Andretti Autosport teammate James Hinchcliffe on his final lap of the Firestone Fast Six session with a lap of 1 minute, 7.8219 seconds on the 1.968-mile, 11-turn course. Hinchcliffe, driving the No. 27 United Fiber & Data car, was .1184 of a second back after completing the 10-minute session.

“It just comes down to this team giving me what I need when I need it,” said Hunter-Reay, who registered his sixth Indy car pole and the 30th for Andretti Autosport in the No. 28 DHL car. “What a qualifying session. You never knew who was going to put in the best lap; it was anybody’s session. It’s a good start for us, but tomorrow is going to be challenging. We have the standing start and a long day on the beach. We’ve been on the outside pole so many times here and final got the big one.”
