Barber - Practice 4 times

Charlie Kimball set the pace in Sunday morning warm-up, the last chance for teams to fine-tune the cars ahead of this afternoon's race.
Ganassi driver Charlie Kimball clinched the top spot on the timing screens in Sunday warm-up, just seconds before the session came to a premature end following a spin by Ed Carpenter at the exit of turn 9 which triggered the session's sole red flag.

It's the first time that Kimball has topped an official race weekend session in his IZOD IndyCar Series career. On Sunday he was able to claim his best starting grid position to date with fifth place for the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama, which starts at 2.40pm local time (8.40pm BST) at Barber Motorsports Park.

Kimball's time of 1:09.0313s (119.946mph) on the 2.38-mile, 17-turn permanent road course was 0.1372 seconds ahead of Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing's Josef Newgarden. Tony Kanaan and Scott Dixon were the next fastest cars on track, with Kanaan's KV Racing team mate Simona de Silvestro in fifth place after having earlier headed the timesheets at the midpoint of the half hour session.
