Edmonton: Franchitti tops Practice 3
Dario Franchitti
Dario Franchitti has started from the pole in the past three IZOD IndyCar Series races. Rain has impacted each race weekend. Ryan Hunter-Reay has won all three races.

The first two elements were lining up for the Edmonton Indy. Franchitti topped the time sheet in the morning practice session on the City Centre Airport circuit and rain is forecast to hit during the three rounds of qualifications (3 p.m. ET).

Franchitti recorded a best lap of 1 minute, 16.8904 seconds (104.127 mph) on the 2.224-mile, 13-turn course. Target Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Scott Dixon was .0263 of a second behind and Team Penske's Will Power was third (.0717 of a second behind Franchitti).

The top 18 cars were separated by less than a second in the one-hour session.
