INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Tony Kanaan was fastest in the final round of practice for the 100th Indy 500, posting a lap of 226.280 mph to highlight a frantic Carb Day that saw Pippa Mann back slam the wall midway through the session.
Carlos Munoz spent most of the hour-long practice Friday, later extended by 10 minutes, atop the charts. But the popular Kanaan bumped the Honda driver late in practice to give Chevrolet the top spot. Munoz had a lap of 224.772, followed by Scott Dixon, Will Power and Ryan Hunter-Reay.
Pole sitter James Hinchcliffe was 12th on the chart, though he called his car “the best it’s been,” and Graham Rahal called his car “the best I’ve ever had going into this.” He had the 14th-best lap.
