HPD Trackside -- 2017 Indy 500 Carb day


Veteran Takuma Sato led the way for Honda Saturday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, posting the second-fastest speed in his Andretti Autosport Honda during the traditional “Carb Day” final practice session prior to Sunday’s Indianapolis 500.

Sato led a string of Honda drivers who finished the session in positions two through seven in the hour-long practice. Tony Kanaan, winner here in 2013, posted the third fastest speed in his Chip Ganassi Racing Honda, with teammate, pole qualifier – and 2008 “500” winner – Scott Dixon in fourth.

Two-time Formula One world champion Fernando Alonso continued his impressive rookie performance at the “Brickyard”, ending the day fifth overall and again leading the rookie field. Graham Rahal looked particularly strong in traffic while posting the sixth-fastest speed of the day, while defending race winner Alexander Rossi ranked seventh. Another former Indy winner, 2014 champion Ryan Hunter-Reay, completed the top 10 for Honda.
