Coletti paces IndyCar warmup at Indy


INDIANAPOLIS – KV Racing Technology rookie Stefano Coletti posted the fastest lap time in Saturday’s 30-minute morning warmup for today’s Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis.

The driver of the No. 4 Chevrolet posted a 1:10.5942 to lead the way, one of five drivers in the 1:10 bracket around the 2.439-mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.

All of the top five were Chevrolet drivers; Simon Pagenaud, the 2014 race winner, was second ahead of Scott Dixon, Sebastien Bourdais and Juan Pablo Montoya.

Graham Rahal flew the flag for Honda in P6, with a best time of 1:11.0681.

The top 17 drivers were still within 0.8913 of a second.

After one of the Dale Coyne Racing Hondas had engine issues on Friday (Carlos Huertas), the other one (Francesco Dracone) had one today. Dracone’s car was stopped on the exit of oval Turn 2 with oil dry being laid down by the Holmatro Safety Team on course.

Race coverage starts at 3:30 p.m. ET with the green flag about 20 minutes thereafter.
