Newgarden Halfway to Weekend Sweep

Josef Newgarden led this morning ‘s practice session in the run up to qualifying later this afternoon. Newgarsen edged Alexander Rossi by 0.11 seconds with a lap of 1:00.0622. It is possible the pole speed could under 60 seconds.

After the practice session Newgarden affixed his name to the winner’s monument for the second time in 6 months. There is a good chance his name will completely fill the bottom row of the monolith.

Michael Andretti then announced that Oliver and Sebastian Wheldon will join the Andretti Autosport group as karting drivers. The sons of the late Dan Sheldon both hope to drive in Indycar someday.
