“I’m glad we ended up doing three because I guess two wasn’t enough,” Herta said. “I really got to nail that third lap. The Gainbridge car was awesome, awesome being powered by Honda. What an amazing track. I love this place so much. Two for two for poles here.”
“We can be as aggressive as we want,” Herta said. “Starting from pole is the best seat in the house. “I’m hoping it’s a nice and easy race like 2019. Hopefully we won’t get challenged too hard and we can run away from the front.”
Any driver 55 points or more behind the leader after this race will be eliminated from championship contention entering the season-ending Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach on Sunday, Sept. 26 at Long Beach, California.
