Jack Harvey (Schmidt Peterson Motorsports with Curb-Agajanian) obliterated the previous Long Beach track record to capture the pole position for the Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires race.
Harvey’s top lap in the new Dallara IR-15 chassis was the last of his 29 laps in the 45-minute session, at 1 minute, 12.0405 seconds. It was 0.8969 of a second better than the old track record set by Carlos Munoz in 2013.
Rounding out the top three qualifiers for Sunday’s 60-lap race were Juncos Racing teammates Spencer Pigot (1:12.1156) and Kyle Kaiser (1:12.1573). The top seven qualifiers eclipsed the old record.
