Quotes


Colton Herta (#26 Andretti Autosports Honda) pole qualifier, second pole of 2022;
seventh career pole; first INDYCAR repeat pole qualifier of 2022: "That was an intense session, but it all really came together on that [pole winning] lap.  


I'm happy with my Gainbridge Honda, it's really fast right now.  The car is amazing, the team is amazing, thank you to Honda, it's awesome to have a 1-2 [qualifying result] for them.  We're ready for tomorrow."



Scott Dixon (#9 Chip Ganassi Racing Honda) will start second: "
Thought I might have a [pole winning] lap in there, but kinda over-drove a bit into Turn 6.  I think I was up about two-and-a-half tenths [of a second] until we got to that corner.  You know, this track is pretty technical and easy to over-drive.  The fastest bits are right up against the wall.  


The closer you get, the faster you go, but it's a hard one to judge.  It's going to be an attrition race tomorrow, with some cautions here and there.  But all-in-all, a good day for Honda and Chip Ganassi Racing.  I think all of our cars are really fast.  Congrats to Colton [Herta], and to Honda for another 1-2. We can win from here, I think, so we're going to be giving it everything tomorrow."





Fast Facts




    Honda-powered drivers and teams have a history of success at Toronto, winning 10 times in both CART and IndyCar Series competition, most recently with Scott Dixon's victory in 2018.  One of Dixon's three career wins in Toronto, he is now tied with former teammate Dario Franchitti as Honda's most successful driver on the Exhibition Place street circuit.


    Honda has served as title sponsor of the Toronto event since it returned to the IndyCar Series schedule in 2009.  The sponsorship is administered through Honda Canada, Inc., Honda Motor Company's Canadian subsidiary.


    With corporate headquarters in the Toronto suburb of Markham, Honda Canada was formed in 1969.  The company's first manufacturing facility was opened in Alliston, Ontario, in 1986.  A second Alliston manufacturing facility began operations in 1998 and an engine assembly plant opened in 2008.


    Honda Canada Inc. supports a network of 237 Honda and 51 Acura authorized automotive dealers in Canada. There are also over 600 dealers for Honda motorcycle and power equipment products. These dealers sell motorcycles, scooters, mopeds, snowblowers, lawnmowers and other equipment in Canada.
