The first INDYCAR practice session for the Angie’s List Grand Prix of Indianapolis is in the books. Will Power led the first session with a fastest time of 1:09.8943.

There were only two stoppages as rookie Matt Brabham was stopped in pit lane when the front left wheel nearly fell off at 11:21 a.m. The second red flag came out at 12:05 as defending Indy 500 champion Helio Castroneves slid off course into Turn 12. The car was restarted by the safety team, and returned to the pit under its own power.
Graham Rahal had a strong practice session as he led the way for most of the practice session with a time of 1:10.0699.

Rookies Alexander Rossi and Gabby Chavez saw the most track time as they completed 31 laps each. Rossi saw his top time on lap 29 with a time 1:10.5983. Chavez reached a time of 1:10.6892 on lap 28.

Spencer Pigot took the top time among rookies with a time of 1:10.5460 on his 30th and final lap of the session. Rossi (1:10.5983), Max Chilton (1:10.7064), Noblesville native Conor Daly (1:10.8545), and Brabham (1:14.7532) round out all of the rookies in the first practice session.
