With an average speed of 231.685 miles per hour, the New Zealander was just ahead of Colton Herta at 231.655 miles per hour.

Third place on the grid – and thus still on the front row – was secured by Dutchman Rinus VeeKay, who only a week ago secured his first Indycar victory on the Indianapolis Grand Prix circuit.

Ed Carpenter secured fourth on the grid with the second Chevi ahead of Brazilian legend Tony Kanaan and Alex Palou.

The remaining places in the top 9 were taken by Ryan Hunter-Reay, Helio Castroneves and ex-Formula 1 driver Marcus Ericsson.
