ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Louis Foster begins his 2023 Indy NXT campaign on pole position for the first race of the season on the streets of St. Petersburg.

The 2022 USF Pro 2000 champion went around the 14-turn, 1.8-mile street circuit in 1 minute, 5.1103 seconds to average 99.523 mph. The No. 26 Andretti Autosport entry beat Jacob Abel’s No. 51 Abel Motorsports’s entry by .0660 seconds.

The qualifying session had only eight minutes of green flag running, which was enough time to get all 19 cars to turn seven laps each. Only Jagger Jones had an issue when he caused a local yellow flag during the session, losing his best lap time to that point.
