NASCAR Cup Series star Kyle Larson in the No.17 HendrickCars Arrow McLaren Chevrolet says it felt good to get some laps in traffic during a rain shortened open test day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway ahead of next month’s 108th running of the Indianapolis 500.

It felt good. Just good to get laps and get in some traffic, and to visually see what that looked like, to feel the runs and the dirty air a little bit. I feel like I learned quite a bit there and still have a lot to learn. It’s been a good morning so far. By yourself, (the car) has a lot of grip. In traffic, it was good. The first time I got in traffic, the balance felt normal. I didn’t feel like I went into a big transition from clean air to dirty air, but the last time I was super tight. It was good to experience to feel what that felt like. The packs I’ve been in have only had two or three cars, but it’ll be way different when the field is out there. I’ve just got to keep getting laps, and as the packs keep getting bigger, I think I’ll learn a lot more.”
