Milwaukee - Saturday practice times

Dario Franchitti took a clean sweep of the Saturday practice sessions on the Milwaukee Mile ahead of the qualifying session for Sunday's 225 lap event.
Ganassi dominated the morning session, but had to work harder in the afternoon to see off a strong surge in form by the KV Racing Technology stable of cars.

The qualifying session follows at 4.45pm local time. The race itself commences at 3pm on Sunday afternoon.

IndyCar is back at the Milwaukee Mile after a year's hiatus. In the last race at the one-mile oval, Scott Dixon beat pole sitter Ryan Briscoe to the chequered flag with Franchitti and Graham Rahal finishing close behind.

Practice 3 - Saturday afternoon

Dario Franchitti put in a fast time of 21.5629s (169.458mph) in the final minutes to oust a potential KV Racing Technology one-two consisting of Takuma Sato and Tony Kanaan.

Will Power then put in a final flying lap to split the KV duo, while Franchitti's Ganassi team mate Scott Dixon ended up in sixth place behind Andretti Autosport's Ryan Hunter-Reay.
