Besides the IZOD IndyCar Series and Firestone Indy Lights Series, the Pro Mazda Championship is also on the schedule for this weekend’s Milwaukee IndyFest.

NBC Sports Network production assistant Ashley Wilson takes a look at some of the contenders in the Pro Mazda series, primarily the Andretti Autosport pair of Matthew Brabham and Shelby Blackstock. The pair went 1-3 in the last race at Lucas Oil Raceway Park in Indianapolis last month and Brabham has won four of the first five races to start the season.

The Pro Mazda race is at 6 p.m. local time (CT) tonight.

Robert Wickens showed the way in final practice for Sunday’s KOHLER Grand Prix, topping the speed charts with a quick time of 1:42.991, the only time below 1:43 during the session.

Ryan Hunter-Reay, Simon Pagenaud, Alexander Rossi, and Graham Rahal completed the top five.

The lone incident of the session came right at the end, when Zach Veach went for a spin exiting Bill Mitchell Bend (turn 13). However, Veach did not suffer any damage in the incident.

Times are below. Qualifying begins at 4:00 p.m. ET (3:00 p.m. local time) and will air on NBCSN at 6:30 p.m. ET.
