Qualifying Report: Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix

 DETROIT (June 1, 2024) -- Driving the No. 14 Sexton Properties Chevrolet, Santino Ferrucci posted his best qualifying effort on a road or street course since joining AJ Foyt Racing last year.  He will start 10th in tomorrow's Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix.


"Pretty happy with our qualifying performance," said Ferrucci. "It's really tight and really difficult. We definitely had two or three tenths in it. It would have been really tight to make the Fast 6. We were just a little offset with our strategy. Overall, though really happy.

“As for the race tomorrow, I think we have a good long run car. The car doesn't really fall off much so I'm looking forward to it. We're starting top 10 and let's stay there."


Driving the No. 41 Chevrolet, Sting Ray Robb qualified 24th in the 27-car field. but will start 23rd once grid penalties for unapproved engine changes are assessed.


“A little disappointed with the result in qualifying," said Robb. "I thought we had a better car than that yet again, but good to see Santino (Ferrucci) do well. I think we have a good idea of where we need to be. Little changes here and there make a big difference around this place. We’re in the window and we weren’t too far off. A little bit here and there with the Goodheart Chevy, and we’ll be back at it tomorrow.”

Colton Herta won the NTT P1 (pole) Award. Rounding out the Firestone Fast 6 were Alex Palou, Josef Newgarden, Scott McLaughlin, Scott Dixon and Kyle Kirkwood.


The Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix will be broadcast live on the USA Network tomorrow starting at 12 p.m. ET and streamed live on Peacock.
