Meyer Shank Racing Fast Friday Report

#60: Felix Rosenqvist, Meyer Shank Racing Honda

Indianapolis, Ind. (17 May 2024) – Meyer Shank Racing (MSR) completed the final day of Indianapolis 500 practice before Saturday’s qualifying. Tom Blomqvist, Felix Rosenqvist and Helio Castroneves all ran several qualifying simulations on Friday and closed out the day feeling confident heading into Saturday (11:00am ET, Peacock TV, SiriusXM Ch. 218).


Felix Rosenqvist, No. 60 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda

Four-Lap Average Rank: P6

Four-Lap Average Speed: 232.906 mph

Qualifying Draw: 24

Felix Rosenqvist Quote: “Fast Friday done! We’re pretty happy. We’re the fifth fastest four-lap average with an hour to go – but we’ve decided to call it today. We’re happy with the car. We have a good window with the setup and we feel confident going into tomorrow. We might trim a little bit to get that extra ‘spiciness’ out of the car but it was a productive day. I think we’re the strongest Honda so far.”

Helio Castroneves, MSR w/ Curb-Agajanian No. 06 Cleveland-Cliffs Honda

Four-Lap Average Rank: P14

Four-Lap Average Speed: 232.200 mph

Qualifying Draw: 33

Helio Castroneves Quote: “Really promising day today, we really fine tuned the car. I think we can be in the Fast 12 tomorrow, that’s the goal. We’ll have to do a little more tuning to make it to the Fast Six but I think we’re in a good spot right now.”


Tom Blomqvist, No. 66 AutoNation / Arctic Wolf Honda: 

Four-Lap Average Rank: P27

Four-Lap Average Speed: 230.945

Qualifying Draw: 22

Tom Blomqvist Quote: “Wow, my first ever Fast Friday done and dusted! It was an interesting day – and actually, I was pretty nervous going into today, it was the first time I’ve had 100 more horsepower behind my back. Honestly, though, it was easier than I expected. Once you get into the car, you work pretty well at those speeds. We just need to tune up the car a little bit, I’m missing a bit of speed compared to my teammates so we need to see what we can do. We have to keep chipping away, see if we can find more speed in the car, but my teammates look pretty good. I’m happy with the day, getting through it with no issues, and getting a few good runs in, though not all of them green ones. We’ll look at the data and see if we can find a few steps forward.”
