LEXINGTON, Ohio – Ryan Hunter-Reay paced a rather stop-start second 45-minute practice session for the Verizon IndyCar Series’ Honda Indy 200 (Sunday, 3 p.m. ET, CNBC).

The driver of the No. 28 DHL Honda from Andretti Autosport posted a best time of 1:04.2961 around the 2.258-mile Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Drivers and teams couldn’t really get in much of a rhythm as a brief spritz interrupted running during the session. There were no red flags during the session.

Josef Newgarden was second ahead of Scott Dixon, Simon Pagenaud and Alexander Rossi. It makes for a variety-laden top-five with three teams (Andretti, Team Penske, Chip Ganassi Racing) with both manufacturers (three Hondas, two Chevrolets) in the top five.

No one had any issues on-track during the session other than Will Power running on-and-off at the Keyhole, Turn 2.
