Edmonton: Practice 2

Helio Castroneves put himself at the top of the timings in the afternoon practice session at Edmonton, less than three thousandths of a second faster than Scott Dixon.
The big names returned to the top of the timesheets in practice 2, after earlier having had a quiet morning of it at Edmonton City Center Airport. Helio Castroneves went top with a lap of 1:16.4920s just over 15 minutes before the end of the hour-long session, with Scott Dixon slipping into second just 0.0027s behind.

Mike Conway recovered from a technical issue to bound into second just as the chequered flag came out, pushing local heroes James Hinchliffe and Alex Tagliani down to fourth and fifth ahead of Dario Franchitti, in a session broken up by four red flags for minor incidents.
