Gateway IndyCar: Daly tops evening practice, Kimball crashes

Carlin Racing-Chevrolet ended evening practice for Saturday’s Bommarito Automotive Group 500 with mixed feelings as Conor Daly grabbed top spot barely a minute before teammate Charlie Kimball struck the wall and ended the session early.

Daly had just lapped the 1.25-mile World Wide Technology Raceway in 24.7346sec – an average speed of 181.931mph, set without the aid of a tow – when Kimball washed out high through Turn 3 and struck the Turn 4 wall with his right-front corner.

The car drifted to a halt on the main straight with a torn up wheel and deranged right-front suspension, Kimball stepped out unaided, but the scheduled one-hour session was brought to a slightly premature halt.

Second-fastest was polesitter and championship leader Josef Newgarden whose Team Penske-Chevrolet was 0.6mph slower than Daly but 0.3mph faster than third placed Zach Veach in the Andretti Autosport-Honda.

Takuma Sato was fourth in the Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing-Honda ahead of the two Chip Ganassi Racing-Hondas.

Tony Kanaan was an encouraging 12th for AJ Foyt Racing-Chevrolet, while Spencer Pigot was the busiest driver, turning 76 laps for Ed Carpenter Racing.

Saturday’s race gets the green flag at 7.45 local (Central) time.
