Newgarden to Start 25th at 2013 Indianapolis 500
Josef Newgarden flew to the top of the speed charts on Bump Day for the 2013 Indianapolis 500 in his first and only qualifying attempt in the second day of qualifying.
Driving the No. 21 Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing Century 21/Dallara/Honda/Firestone car, Newgarden drove a four lap average of 225.731 mph to secure the 25th starting position in next Sunday's Greatest Spectacle in Racing.
"We knew we would be fine," Newgarden said. "I think we would have been okay yesterday if we had another shot at it and then we would have had more opportunity to just work on the race car, but that wasn't the case so we came here today and got a nice run in."
"We're in the show so it's good," he said. "There's no speed loss in the car in my opinion. We had a little bit of a bobble yesterday and we weren't able to show our representative speed, but we did a little bit better today and I think we have even more to come for the race. We've got a lot of confidence."
Not only does Newgarden believe in himself, but he also has faith in his team as he prepares for his second Indianapolis 500.
"Everyone works really hard at Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing," Newgarden said. "We have some of the most talented guys out there. They built a fast car and I think we had a quicker car than we showed, but just getting the car in the show right now is the priority. We weren't contenders for pole so now we want to focus on the race."
The 97th running of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing will begin next Sunday, May 26 at 12 p.m. ET and will air live on ABC. For the latest updates from the Century 21 car follow @SFHRindy on Twitter.
SFHR Bumped from Top 24 on Pole Day
Josef Newgarden set out to contend for the coveted pole position on Pole Day for the 97th running of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing, but the cards were not in his favor.
Driving the No. 21 Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing (SFHR) Century 21/Dallara/Honda/Firestone car, Newgarden was bumped from the top 24 positions with less than one minute remaining in Segment 1 of qualifying.
"It's a shame because we have plenty of speed in the Century 21 car, we just got the process wrong today," Newgarden said.
SFHR hoped Newgarden's first and only qualifying speed of 225.210 mph would be enough, but James Jakes, driver of the No. 16 car, knocked Newgarden off the bubble, leaving no time for a second qualification attempt.
"Qualifying is important in that it's a big part of the whole event and obviously we try our best to do well and we'd love to get the pole, but I don't think it's in our cards this year to be right up front," Newgarden said. "What is in the cards for us is to do well in the race and that's exactly what we're going to focus on."
Though Newgarden's qualification speed fell short of expectations, the Century 21 driver has proven he is fast, turning a lap at 228.609 mph earlier today during practice.
"We were not the fast guy out there and we lost a lot of speed from practice," he said. "I don't know where the speed went, but qualifying is not the most important thing at this track when you think about the race next Sunday."
The second year driver will work to claim his spot in the 2013 Indianapolis 500 field during Bump Day on Sunday, May 19, beginning at 12 p.m. ET. NBC Sports Network will air live coverage starting at 12 p.m. ET. For the latest updates from the Century 21 car follow @SFHRindy on Twitter.
