Instead of a 30-minute Sunday morning warm-up at some tracks IndyCar gives the teams an extra 30-minute session on Friday.

Andretti Honda driver Alexander Rossi finally put on a set of Firestone red tires and promptly turned the fastest lap at 1m10.099s.

Andretti Honda cars had 4 of the 5 fastest cars with Colton Herta third quick and Conor Daly 5th quick.

Scott Dixon broke up the Andretti team party with the 4th quick time in his Ganassi Honda giving Honda powered cars a 1-2-3-4-5.
