Zack Meyer Qualifies Eleventh For Long Beach 100

With two practice sessions and two strong results under his belt, Zack Meyer began qualifying for the Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires Long Beach 100 this morning optimistic of a high starting position. When all was said and done, though, the 21-year-old Canadian racer had to settle for eleventh, further down the order than he expected. However, with the lessons learned from the weekend thus far on the streets of Long Beach, Cali., combined with the knowledge gleaned from the first round of the season in St. Petersburg, Fla., Meyer heads into the race confident of advancing his position.

Meyer and his #2 TMR/DAMIS PARTNERS III/Innisfil Indy Karting/Xtreme Coil Drilling car were sixth quickest in practice, and both he and his Team Moore Racing crew expected a lot from their first qualifying session of the season after rain canceled qualifying in St. Petersburg. “Heading into qualifying, I felt really good about the car, and honestly thought I had a shot at the top three,” explained Meyer. “In qualifying, though, I just made a simple mistake that cost me a lot of time. The car should be good on the long run in the race tomorrow. If the car performs the way I expect during the race then I should be able to pull off some passes and get towards the front.”

After losing a few positions at the start of the last race, Meyer is determined to be ready for everything Sunday has in store. “What I learned to help me this weekend was to pay attention to everything and be ready,” Meyer relayed. “So now I just have to get a good night’s sleep, wake up, and destroy the race.”

The only Canadian in the Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires field will take the green flag for the 45-lap Long Beach 100 at 1:15 p.m. EDT. The television broadcast of the race will air on NBC Sports Network on a tape-delayed basis at 2:30 p.m. EDT.
