Chip Ganassi Racing‘s Alex Palou claims his first NTT IndyCar Series pole position on his first trip to Portland International Raceway for the Grand Prix of Portland.
“It was really intense” Palou said. “We needed this one. We’ve been super competitive throughout this season, but we’ve never got that pole. But we got it here.”
Palou was fastest in the early practice session after bringing out a red flag and was fastest in every segment of qualifying he took laps in. After an engine failure and wreck in the past two events, Palou put himself in prime position to take his third win of the 2021 season.
