Devlin DeFrancesco will start 14th in tomorrow’s13th round of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES for Andretti Steinbrenner Autosport and a strong performance in qualifying today at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The 21-year-old Italian-Canadian rookie was sixth fastest in the morning practice session but just fell shy of finishing in the top six in his qualifying group.
“Gutted we didn’t transfer out of Segment One, missed it by about .008,” DeFrancesco said.
“Quite a hectic qualifying session with the red flag at the start and having to go out and execute. It is what it is. We start 14th tomorrow with two sets of Firestone reds, and I’m excited to go for it.”
Tomorrow’s race goes green at 12:30 pm and can be seen live on NBC.
