Kentucky - Practice times (2)

Scott Dixon completed the second of the two practice sessions on top of the timesheets at Kentucky Speedway again, this time ahead of Ryan Hunter-Reay and Ed Carpenter.
Scott Dixon again topped the practice timesheets at the Kentucky Speedway, setting a time of 24.2587s that was just 0.013s ahead of Andretti Autosport's Ryan Hunter-Reay.

Dixon had been vying for the top time for much of the session with last year's pole sitter Ed Carpenter, who ended up in third place ahead of Dario Franchitti, Marco Andretti and James Hinchcliffe. Franchitti's main title rival Will Power ended the session in seventh place.

The one-hour session was straightforward but saw three caution periods. The first came at the halfway point, and running had resumed for less than five minutes before debris brought out the yellows again. There was another debris caution eight minutes before the end, leaving cars with just over three minutes of running before the final chequered flag.

This was the final practice session before qualifying at 6pm local time (11pm BST).
