Indy 500: Practice 3 times

Josef Newgarden returned to the top of the timesheets on Monday, the first driver into the over-222mph speeds as the Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing rookie continued to impress.
Indianapolis 500 rookie or not, Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing's Josef Newgarden continued to show them how it was done at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, as practice for the 96th running of 'the greatest spectacle in motorsport' entered its third day on Monday.

Newgarden took advantage of a late outbreak of pack-drafting to boost his speeds, as did many of the others - including Jean Alesi, who finally topped 210 mph and was duly able to put in the laps necessary for him to complete his Rookie Orientation Program. He has duly become eligible to progress to Indy 500 qualifying and make it onto the grid for the race on May 27.
