Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda ended Carb Day as the fastest Honda powered driver on Friday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with a fastest speed of 225.685MPH and speaking following the session he commented by saying:
“I don’t really know if today told us too much about what the race will bring in the PNC Bank car. It’s really warm today and we think it could be even warmer on race day. The track temp was way up there today as well. I’m not really sure what you can learn from the times today. There were a lot of people throwing tires at it out there. Overall, the car felt good and we were comfortable. You just never know exactly what you’re going to have until you get into the race
Ed Jones in the No.10 NTT DATA Honda finished Carb Day in tenth place with a fastest speed of 223.556MPH and speaking following the session he commented by saying:
I think we had a very positive end to practice here at Indianapolis. The NTT DATA car felt really good and I was very happy with the direction and changes we made. I was also pretty happy with how the car handled in traffic, which is important for the race.
