Rahal Tops Final Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis Practice

INDIANAPOLIS – Though he’ll start from the tail end of the field, Graham Rahal showed speed to lead the way in a frigid final practice for Saturday’s Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis.

Rahal’s 1:09.6045 led the way for the Verizon IndyCar Series on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course, with fellow Honda drivers Alexander Rossi (1:09.654) and Carlos Muñoz (1:09.6626) rounding out the top three.

Simon Pagenaud and Scott Dixon finished out the top five, with Marco Andretti, Josef Newgarden, Max Chilton, Juan Pablo Montoya and Conor Daly completing the top 10.

Rahal and Newgarden will each have to start from end of the field in Saturday’s race after failing post-qualifying inspection.

The practice session served as the final tuneup before this afternoon’s Angie’s List Grand Prix. The race will begin at 3:30 p.m. ET.
