Iowa IndyCar: Pagenaud tops evening practice
By:
Jul 9, 2017, 12:07 AM

Team Penske’s defending IndyCar Series champion Simon Pagenaud was fastest in the final session of the day, after clocking a 179.617mph on his 10th of 46 laps.

Pagenaud’s Penske-Chevrolet completed 46 laps and the Frenchman headed Ed Carpenter by 0.25mph, with polesitter Will Power claiming third, a further 1mph adrift.

Chip Ganassi Radcing’s Scott Dixon will be starting only 17th, but he should have a fast car, judging by the evening’s laptimes, finishing fourth fastest on 177.398 – as top Honda runner.

His teammate Tony Kanaan was sixth quickest, the pair split by defending race winner Josef Newgarden in a third Penske.

Graham Rahal’s Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing-Honda was seventh ahead of Helio Castroneves’ Penske, with Mikhail Aleshin of Schmidt Peterson Motorsports and Andretti Autosport-Honda’s Alexander Rossi completing the Top 10.

Dale Coyne Racing’s Esteban Gutierrez, making his oval debut this weekend, was the hardest working driver on pitlane, racking up 76 laps of the 0.894-mile oval, and it paid off as he finished 0.05mph faster than teammate Ed Jones.

Andretti Autosport’s Ryan Hunter-Reay and Marco Andretti continued to struggle, finishing 16th and 18th, while AJ Foyt Racing’s Carlos Munoz and Conor Daly were languishing in 17th and 21st.

The teams will get 10mins of pitstop practice tomorrow at 3.10pm local (Central) time, while the race will start at 4.40pm.
