Eleven cars actually took the green flag today, but after some mechanical issues in his warm up and first lap, Oriol Servia and his No. 64 Scuderia Corsa RLL team opted to wave off the run during Lap 3. He is still guaranteed an attempt since the issue was mechanical.

Since I started writing this, the rain has subsided and the sun has come out. Track drying efforts are currently underway but IndyCar has stated that the soonest we could potentially resume qualifications would be 2:30 p.m. We should get another update around 1:30 p.m. so stay tuned to my social media (links at the end of this post) for updates.
