The IndyCars are back at Portland International Raceway and ahead of opening practice Friday, Thursday was designated as a 'Test Day' because teams had no setups for the current car for this track.

Will Power was fastest in the first practice session that ended at 12:45pm Pacific Time, just beating Andretti Autosport teammates Marco Andretti and Alexander Rossi.

Jordan King and Josef Newgarden rounded out the top-5 which saw Chevys and Honda fairly equally matched.

The next session begins at 3:25pm Pacific Time. Champ Car Speeds from 2007 were in the 121-122mph range
