Marco Andretti moves the month’s fastest lap up to 223.6 mph as a wild drafting pack breaks out in the final half-hour of Tuesday’s running.

If the 96th running of the Indianapolis 500 is going to look anything like the drafting battles that broke out in the final half-hour of Tuesday’s practice, be prepared to watch 500 miles of thrilling/frightening action on Sunday, May 27th.




Andretti Autosport’s Marco Andretti used his No. 26 Chevy-powered Dallara DW12 to set the month’s fastest lap, registering a 223.6 mph tour of the 2.5-mile oval with the help of a cluster of cars that looked like a wild, meandering swarm of high-speed bees.

“I’m really pleased with where we are at with the race car so far,” said Andretti. “I have just been really working on the car in a pack, and just trying to stay flat in traffic. We have the car to the point now that I am confident to say we would be the ones to beat if the race was today. The speed on its own I’m a little concerned about. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, if we start 33rd, we can still win this race.”  This article continued here…
