“We’re sitting potentially as the No. 1 qualifier at Indy. It’s a lifelong dream come true,” Hartford said. “There are two things that would make this season better: No. 1 to win the championship, No. 2 is to win Indy. Our goal is to go four rounds here on Monday, and four rounds for every race in the Countdown and see where the points stack up. Our team has really gelled, we’ve had the same team now for a long time. We’ve made three incredible runs for the conditions.”
