2013 Mid-Ohio: Chevrolet IndyCar Qualifying Recap

For the third time this season, defending IZOD IndyCar Series champion Ryan Hunter-Reay has set the fastest time in the Firestone Fast Six to win the Verizon P1 Award. The driver of the No. 1 DHL Andretti Autosport Chevrolet missed breaking the track record by just two-hundredths of a second with his lap of 01:05.3519 minute/124.385 m.p.h. around the 2.258-mile, 13-turn Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course near Lexington, Ohio.

Turning in the second quickest time of the session was Will Power, No. 12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet. It is his fifth time this season Power has posted a front row qualifying effort.

"Kudos to Ryan Hunter-Reay and the Andretti Autosport team for winning the pole today at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course." said Chris Berube, Chevrolet Racing Program Manager, IZOD IndyCar Series. "Ryan and his DHL crew have been strong all week here and are again showing that championship form. Will Power and his Verizon / Team Penske squad have been quick all week as well, and will start alongside Ryan on an all-Chevrolet front row for the 200 mile race. Our focus now shifts to providing the Team Chevy contingent with the most reliable, powerful and tractable engine so they may execute flawless race performances on Sunday. We will not rest until the Chevy bow tie is on the top step of the podium."

Giving Team Chevy three of the Fast Six was Marco Andretti, No. 25 RC Cola Andretti Autosport Chevrolet. Andretti was posted fourth in the final order of 24 cars that qualified for the 14th race of the 19-race season.

Making up the remainder of the Fast Six were: Scott Dixon - third fastest, Charlie Kimball - fifth quickest and Dario Franchitti turned in the sixth fastest time of the day.

The Chevrolet IndyCar V6 drivers will have one more look at the track prior to the start of the 90-lap/ 203.22-mile race during a 30-minute warm-up scheduled for 11:00 a.m. ET.
