IndyCar Indy 500 Auto Racing

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Two-time champion Takuma Sato led a strong showing from the Chip Ganassi Racing quartet in final practice for the Indianapolis 500 on Friday, while Graham Rahal and Katherine Legge worked feverishly to get up to speed before race day.

Sato turned a fast lap of 227.855 mph early in the session, and teammate Scott Dixon was right behind with pole sitter Alex Palou fourth on the speed chart. Marcus Ericsson, the defending race winner, wasn't far behind for the Ganassi stable, which is trying to give its team owner his sixth victory in “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.”
