The 2008 winner and four-time pole sitter accelerated to 227,119 mph on his 11th with 25 laps of the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway 2.5 miles long. He was just 0.0269 seconds ahead of his Swedish teammate Eriksin, which is 0.154 miles per hour.

Currently, the Dreyer & Reinbold Racing-Chevrolet team, which consists of only Indy 500, has done its usual good job on the speedway, and Sage Karam and Santina Ferrucci finished the session in third and sixth place.

Conor Daly, who finished fifth in the GMR Grand Prix of India on the track, was fourth in speed for Ed Carpenter Racing-Chevrolet, and Marco Andretti was the fastest of the Andretti Autosport-Honda racers.

Newcomer of the year Indy 500 2021 Scott McLaughlin became the best driver of the Penske-Chevrolet team in seventh place, ahead of last year’s runner-up Alex Palu (Ganassi) and Pat O’Ward of Arrow McLaren SP-Chevrolet.

J.R. Hildebrand, Kyle Kirkwood and Dalton Kellett were encouragingly fast for AJ Foyt Racing-Chevy in 10th11th and 13th respectively, which ensured that Kirkwood was the fastest of the beginners with a lap of 224,484 km / h.

Jimmy Johnson, who has won the Brickyard 400 at IMS four times in his illustrious NASCAR Cup career, was 21street in his first official practice for India.

Two-time 500-winner Takuma Sato had problems with the airport on his Dale Coyne Racing with RWR-Honda and ran just four laps.

Towing time can be misleading, as can total time, as several cars simply won’t get a seat on the track, leaving them with an eight-second lead ahead – a margin by which towing time is estimated. However, for the record, 2013 Indy 500 winner Tony Canaan was the fastest in a Ganassi № 1 car supported by the American Legion, driving a lap at 221,662 miles per hour. Next were Ferrucci, Josef Newgarden of Penske, David Malukas (Dale Coyne Racing of HMD) and Ericsson.

A total of 32 cars took part in the two-hour session. At 13.00, 33etc. The record, DragonSpeed ​​of Stefan Wilson’s Cusick Motorsports-Chevrolet, will have two hours of time on the track (1pm to 3pm) so Wilson can pass the refresher test.

Provided he passes, he will be allowed to join the other 32 cars on the track for the second session of the day, which will run from 3pm to 6pm.
