Sato Leads Honda Effort at Indianapolis 500 “Carb Day” Final Practice

·       Final practice prior to 99th Indianapolis 500

·       Gabby Chaves continues impressive rookie performance

·       Green Flag set for 12 p.m. Sunday

 

Takuma Sato led the way for Honda and his A.J. Foyt team in the traditional “Carb Day” final practice Friday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway prior to Sunday’s Indianapolis 500. 

 

Sato posted the fifth-fastest speed of the 33 drivers and teams who qualified for the 99th running of the Memorial Day weekend classic.  Gabby Chaves continued his run of impressive performances in practice to record the ninth-fastest speed for Bryan Herta Autosport and was once again the fastest rookie driver in the field.

 

Television coverage of Sunday’s 99th running of the Indianapolis begins at 11 a.m. on ABC.

 

Takuma Sato (#14 A.J. Foyt Racing Honda) 5th fastest: “It’s very encouraging to see all three cars very competitive [teammates Jack Hawksworth and Alex Tagliani were 12th and 16th, respectively]. I felt comfortable in traffic which is what today is all about. The ABC boys did a great preparation on the car, taking everything off and putting it back together again – the car feels really, really good. A very positive day so we’re in the best position for race day
