Iowa: Practice 1 times

Marco Andretti and Josef Newgarden topped the practice times on Friday morning, looking strong right from the start ahead of the innovative 'heats' qualifying format at Iowa.
Marco Andretti made the running early in first practice at Iowa Speedway, and finished top of the timesheets with a lap of 17.4126s (184.832mph), just 0.0332s faster than Josef Newgarden. Less than a tenth of a second covered the top six, and 24 of the 25 cars were well within a second of Andretti's fastest lap.

There were no incidents requiring caution flags during the 45 minute session on the 0.875-mile asphalt tri-oval track in Newton, Iowa.

The second practice session follows at 2.30pm local time (8.30pm BST). The order at the end of practice will then determine the make up of the 'heat' races that take place starting from 6.15pm local time (12.15am BST).
