・Colton Herta to start on the outside of the front row at REV Group Grand Prix
・Jack Harvey qualifies on the inside of the second row
・Alex Palou looks to reclaim championship lead from fifth on the grid
Colton Herta set the pace for Honda in qualifying for the REV Group Grand Prix of Road America, qualifying on the outside of the front row for Sunday's race in the #26 Andretti Autosport Honda.
A race winner already this year on the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida, Herta hopes to add to his win total for the 2021 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season around the four-mile Road America circuit. Lining up just behind in the third position will be Meyer Shank Racing's Jack Harvey, looking for his first career victory in INDYCAR competition. Chip Ganassi Racing's Alex Palou, winner at the season-opening race at Barber Motorsports Park, will start fifth. Palou currently sits second in the championship points standings, just one point back from Pato O'Ward.
Honda also placed four additional drivers in the top-12, giving HPD an edge seven-to-five in the top 12 spots, with ex-F1 driver Romain Grosjean seventh, Ryan Hunter-Reay eighth, Alexander Rossi ninth and Ed Jones in twelfth.
・Honda Indy car drivers have scored seven victories at Road America, including a clean sweep of both rounds in 2020's doubleheader race weekend. Eventual series champion Scott Dixon won Saturday's opening race; with his then-Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Felix Rosenqvist claiming victory in Sunday's event.
・In 2019, Alexander Rossi dominated at Road America leading 54 of the 55 laps for a crushing, 28-second margin of victory in his Andretti Autosport Honda.
