The final practice for the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500 starts at eleven am. I expect it to be a very busy session as drivers figure out how the cars work in traffic and how the behave in the heat. This is also the time for some teams to get in some pit stop practice under near race conditions.
It doesn’t always happen that Carb day and race day have similar weather, but this year the temperatures should be similar. Look for who is fastest and who turns the most laps. I’m also looking at who runs the most consistent times, especially in traffic.
Daltonm Kellett won the pole for today’s Indy Lights race. In a bit of a surprise, usual top qualifiers Santi Urrutia and Colton Herta start fifth and sixth. It should be a typical Lights race at IMS with a close finish. I will have results later.
Coverage of Carb Day can be seen on NBCSN starting at 11 am EDT
