In a session interrupted by several red flags, Indy 500 winner Simon Pagenaud turned the fastest lap of 59.365s to lead the third practice session for the Honda Indy Toronto.

Pagenaud's time of 59.356s again beat Felix Rosenqvist, this time by just 0.07s. What has everyone scratching their heads is how Pagenaud is the only Chevy in the top-9 and his Penske teammates Will Power and Josef Newgarden are out to lunch.

Ryan Hunter-Reay who caused one of the red flags, was third quick, while Santino Ferrucci and Colton Herta rounded out the top-5.
