Kentucky - Practice times (1)

Scott Dixon posted the best time of the first practice session at Kentucky Speedway, ahead of what could prove to be a vital race for championship rivals Will Power and Dario Franchitti.
Scott Dixon was the only driver to exceed 220mph during first practice at Kentucky Speedway, in fine but chilly conditions.

He managed to hold off an impressively fast Vitor Meira to the top spot, with Wade Cunningham putting in a late flier to end up in third position in the 75 minutes session.
