James Hinchcliffe, No. 27 Chevrolet driver James Hinchcliffe will begin tomorrow’s race from the 20th grid position after being held up in traffic during today’s second round of qualifying, keeping the No. 27 Chevy from advancing on to the Firestone Fast Six. 

We’ve been struggling a little bit this weekend compared to the test. We didn’t have the quickest car, but had enough for Q2… got held up by another car and ended up getting knocked out. It’s frustrating but we’ve got an extra set of reds (Firestone red alternate tires) than those guys now in the race and maybe degradation will come into it tomorrow. We’ll keep fighting and hopefully get the Go Daddy car up in a good position by the end of the day.”
