Team Target: Top-3 in Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg Qualifying
Target Chip Ganassi Racing completed IZOD IndyCar Series qualifying for the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. Both Team Target cars made it to the Firestone Fast Six which resulted in a top-3 run for both drivers.
Franchitti qualified the No. 10 Target Honda Dallara on the outside of the front row with a 1:02.29.
"I was just finding the limit each lap more and more,” Dario said. “I was getting a little bit braver each lap but I just ran out of tire. Its a great starting spot and the Target crew did an outstanding job putting the car back together after the incident I had in the morning session."
Dixon posted a 1:02.39 in the No. 9 Target Honda Dallara and was third quick.
"It was pretty consistent for us today,” Scott commented. “ I messed up a little in the Firestone Fast 6 segment but we've been around the same speeds both days so far. I think we have a few tenths left in the car. I'm really looking forward to the double-wide restarts tomorrow. It should be a great show for the fans."
Team Target will compete tomorrow, March 27th in the IZOD IndyCar Series Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. (ABC, 12:30 p.m. ET.)
