Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda says he feels the Indianapolis 500 next weekend will be pretty cool.
Speaking after leading the pack on day two of practice, the Iceman who is leading the championship by 13 points from Alex Palou commented saying:
“I felt like I was little more comfortable yesterday. “Obviously, track conditions are different. The wind direction, especially (Turns) 2 to 4, swaps pretty big. The track temp was up today.
“Once it gets a bit hotter, I think everybody has a bit of washout, and it’s harder to stay closer. We’ll see with the race, but it looks right now like the race will be pretty cool, which will definitely make for a pretty robust race for people to watch. It’s going to be tight.”
The iceman went on to say:
There are so many competitive cars out there, so, as always, it’s going to be a very tough race. “Happy all the Ganassi cars are fast. Nice to see the 9 up top.

Speaking following the action, Marcus Ericsson in the No.8 Huski Chocolate Honda commented saying:
We had a good car yesterday from the get-go, but overnight we worked on trying to get the car a bit better in dirty air and in a big group, and that’s been a big improvement today. “I feel like I can stay on the throttle in big groups, and that’s the key around here
