Indy 500: Kanaan leads Daly in race setup testing on Day 3

The 2013 Indy 500 winner Tony Kanaan set the fastest lap of the day, as he and Conor Daly were the only drivers to go over 225mph.

Kanaan’s Chip Ganassi Racing-Honda turned a 225.341mph lap on the 71st of 80 laps today, 0.1mph ahead of Ed Carpenter Racing-Chevrolet of Conor Daly.

Santino Ferrucci’s best lap of the day held firm for third fastest despite suffering a heavy shunt on his 51st lap.

His team, Rahal Letterman Lanigan-Honda, found its misery compounded when IndyCar decided to hand out a punishment for its role in this morning’s minor shunt. All three cars will have to miss the first 30mins of practice on Fast Friday.

Josef Newgarden’s Penske-Chevrolet looked very strong on long runs, as did Alex Palou’s Ganassi-Honda, despite finishing the day 11th – and these two completed over 120 laps.

2008 winner Scott Dixon was fifth ahead of Rinus VeeKay, making it two Carpenter cars in the top six.

Three-time winner Helio Castroneves’ part-time Meyer Shank Racing entry was seventh, while Marcus Ericsson looked strong for the third straight day in the #8 Ganassi car.

Takuma Sato, defending winner, brought some pleasure to the RLL team, very happy with the handling of his car, while Colton Herta was top Andretti Autosport-Honda representative in 10th.

Most drivers spent the day running race setups, so most drivers’ no-tow speeds didn’t improve from the first half of the day. Jack Harvey clocked fastest lap for Meyer Shank Racing-Honda at 222.091mph, with the Penskes of Pagenaud, Power and Newgarden second, fourth and fifth respectively, Alexander Rossi’s Andretti car third, and Ed Carpenter sixth.
