There were no major incidents during Practice 2, but it took most of the session to get Colton Herta’s engine changed from his first session incident.

Immediately following Practice 2, IndyCar added 30 minutes to the clock for pit stop practice.

Simon Pagenaud (1:48.333) posted the fastest time in the pit stop / warmup practice, followed by Herta (1:48.434), Rossi (1:48.867), Rosenqvist (1:49.374) and Marco Andretti (1:49.511).

James Hinchcliffe spun off course at the end of that session in Turn 19 to bring out a red flag.
