New Hampshire - Saturday Practice 3

James Hinchcliffe was fastest in Saturday morning practice at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway ahead of qualifying this afternoon for Sunday's MoveThatBlock.com Indy 225 race.
James Hinchcliffe topped the timesheets in the morning practice session, his lap time of 21.6492s on the one mile New Hampshire Motor Speedway oval just pipping Graham Rahal at the last minute by 0.0144s with Tony Kanaan close behind in third place continuing his strong run of form this weekend.

Dario Franchitti did not come out in the first half of the session and only ran 40 laps, never featuring in the top spots and presumably concentrating on race set-up and heavy fuel loads as he ended up in 12th spot. Will Power by contrast improved on his disappointing Thursday form to finish in the top ten in ninth place just behind his Penske team mate Ryan Briscoe, although the team's other drive Helio Castroneves was off the pace in 20th.

The end of the morning session saw spins from Pippa Mann in turn 4 (just in front of Rahal and Dixon) and then a few minutes later a spin for Ed Carpenter that saw Charlie Kimball have to check up suddenly, catching out Danica Patrick running behind him.
