Zack Meyer Rolls Off Ninth For Legacy Indy Lights 100 Race One

The day started on a high, as 21-year-old Canadian Zack Meyer finished the first official practice session for the Legacy Indy Lights 100 in third position. Optimism ran rampant for Meyer and his #2 TMR/DAMIS PARTNERS III/Innisfil Indy Karting/Xtreme Coil Drilling team as they entered qualifying aiming for a top qualifying position for the first race of the doubleheader weekend. When the checkered flag flew, though, Meyer was disappointed to manage only a ninth place qualifying position.

Meyer was left to rue what could have been after his strongest showing thus far in Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires competition. “I was really disappointed with how we ran in qualifying,” lamented Meyer. “The team and I felt really good about our pace in the morning session and we were confident we could repeat that same kind of speed in qualifying. When we got on track, though, we weren’t able to put it all together and get into the top five.”

Looking on the bright side, though, Meyer knows both he and his Team Moore Racing crew are capable of charging through the field during the race. “We showed everyone what we can truly do this morning,” Meyer said. “Obviously qualifying didn’t go how we wanted, so now we have to go back and learn where we went wrong and make it right for the race. We’ve got a chance to show our speed, be smart, display our focus, and work our way up during the first race. If we do that and get in some clean air, we could even improve our starting spot for race two.”

The lineup for the second race will be set by either a driver’s second fastest lap in qualifying or a driver’s fastest lap in the first race, whichever is faster. If conditions are favorable, Meyer could conceivably improve his starting position for race two by showing his car’s impressive speed during race one.

The only Canadian in the Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires field will take the green flag for the 40-minute sprint race of the Legacy Indy Lights 100 weekend on Saturday at 1 p.m. EDT. The television broadcast of both races will air on NBC Sports Network on a tape-delayed basis Sunday at 5:30 p.m. EDT.
