Saturday has dawned bright and sunny here in St. Petersburg as the teams prepare for Sunday's races.

Later this afternoon the IndyCars will qualify after morning practice. The threat of possible rain on Sunday has dissipated and we expect the race to be dry.

The first USF2000 race of the weekend is about to start. Indy Lights qualifying just concluded with Kyle Kaiser taking the pole over Sweden sensation Felix Rosenqvist by just 0.0449 sec.
