Baltimore - Saturday practice

Will Power and Dario Franchitti once again emerged at the top of the practice timesheets at the end of Saturday morning running ahead of qualifying for the Balitmore Grand Prix.
Will Power and Dario Franchitti largely avoided any of the mistakes and dramas that were understandably commonplace through the rest of the field, as drivers continued to explore the limits of this new circuit on the streets of Baltimore.

Although comfortably topping the timesheets, Power may be slightly concerned by the absence of any support from his Penske team mates compared with Franchitti, who had Graham Rahal in third and Scott Dixon in fourth by the time the 60 minute session came to an end.
