The NTT IndyCar Series teams have been on track for the past two days at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway as preparations continue for this weekend’s qualifying for the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge which takes place next weekend.

The 35 cars on track have completed a combined total of roughly 5,581 laps over the opening two days of practice on Tuesday and Wednesday and with just two more days of track action before qualifying this weekend it is still too early to say who has the upper hand.

If it was based purely on Wednesday afternoon’s session, Andretti Autosport would appear to be struggling however, that been said the team has always run well here and Marco Andretti is back this season has taken the pole position for the race last year but didn’t lead a lap in 2020.

On the opening day of action on Tuesday, Team Penske showed their might on the front straight with all four of their cars crossing the line together flexing their muscles. Will Power in the No.12 Verizon 5G Chevrolet led the way with the fastest speed of 226.470MPH while on Wednesday, six-time series champion and current championship leader Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing Honda set the fastest speed of 226.829MPH.

Ed Carpenter Racing’s Conor Daly and Ed Carpenter were also extremely quick on Wednesday with Daly second fastest just ahead of Carpenter.

Practice is once again LIVE on Sky Sports F1HD in Ireland and the UK and on Peacock in the US.
