In the meanwhile, all of the major teams are testing race setups. Penske and Ganassi drivers were out, as were Hamilton, Rahal, Wilson, Carpenter — in fact a total of 33 cars have seen track time today.
Some notables —
Tony Kanaan has only see 223.333 mph, which isn't fast enough to bump Sebastian Saavedra out of the field. Neither Takuma Sato nor Milka Duno have posted fast enough speeds to bump their way in either. Ana Beatriz hasn't seen the track in this afternoon's session, nor did she make a qualification attempt earlier today. Jacques Lazier — literally pulled from his duties running a hospitality room at IMS to take this ride — has yet to take the track in AJ's second car. Tim Wohlford reporting from Indy
