Iowa: Practice 2 times

22 June 2012

Marco Andretti confirmed that he's the man to beat today at Iowa Speedway, as he put in a lap of 186.041mph (17.2994s) on just his eighth time around the 0.875-mile oval track on Friday afternoon in second practice.

No one could match him, although Dario Franchitti put in a surprise late effort to go second just 0.0304s off Marco's time. That means that both men will compete in the third and final qualifying heat on Friday evening which will set the front four rows of the grid for Saturday night's race.

The order at the end of practice now determines the make up of the 'heat' races that take place starting from 6.15pm local time (12.15am BST). The Iowa Corn Indy 250 itself takes place on Saturday at 9pm local time (3am BST Sunday morning.)
