Newsstand » AA Sonoma Qualifying Report
Fan favorite James Hinchcliffe posted a ninth-place qualifying effort today behind the wheel of the the GoDaddy Chevy. Tomorrow’s GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma will be the 26-year-old’s third career start at the Northern California track.
“All in all, we’re relatively pleased. Of course you always want to make it in the (Firestone) Fast Six, and we didn’t do that today. But, from where we were in practice, we made some improvements which is the name of the game here. With a top-10 qualifying, we can work with that in the race. Certainly with the other (Andretti Autosport) cars, we were all hoping to be a bit higher, I think, but this is about Sunday, and that’s what pays the points. If we can just keep making the kind of improvements that we did from yesterday to today, then hopefully we’ll be within a shout of getting the GoDaddy car on the podium tomorrow.”
