Detroit Belle Isle: Practice 3

Scott Dixon put Ganassi top of the timesheets on Saturday morning practice, but he seemed pretty isolated with the Penske and Andretti cars looking set to pounce.
Scott Dixon proved the fastest man out on the 2.07-mile, 14-turn Detroit Belle Isle street course in a chilly and breezy Saturday morning practice, which was beset by three early red flags for spins by Ryan Briscoe, Oriol Servia and Dario Franchitti before things finally settled down.
