CHEVROLET IN THE NTT INDYCAR SERIESCIRCUIT OF THE AMERICASAUSTIN, TEXASINDYCAR CLASSICPOLE WINNER’S QUOTE – WILL POWERMARCH 23, 2019WILL POWER, NO. 12 VERIZON TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET – POLE WINNER:
ANOTHER POLE RUN, AN IMPRESSIVE ONE AT THAT, WHAT WAS THE STRATEGY GOING INTO THAT FINAL ROUND, KNOWING YOU HAD THE EXTRA TWO MINUTES? YOU PLANNED FROM THE BEGINNING TO MAKE TWO RUNS ON TWO DIFFERENT SETS OF TIRES. HOW MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE WAS THAT?
“Yeah, I thought our only chance for the pole was one lap of fuel and do a lap and then next day, one lap of fuel and do a lap and see what we got. That last lap was very neat and I finally breathed by the time I got to the Start/Finish line. It was a super job by the Verizon guys and Chevy with the engine to be P-1, the only Chevy in the Fast Six, so a great job by the whole team.”
YOU HELD YOUR BREATH FOR 20 TURNS?“That’s what it felt like (laughs). I was like man, you have to dig deep. It’s a track with a lot of turns and it’s very technical and a lot of fun and really difficult to get your car around. So, I really enjoyed that one.”
NOTE: It is the second NTT P1 Award of the season for Power and the 56th of his career.
