Milwaukee IndyFest (West Allis, Wisconsin): Practice 2 times

Team mates Marco Andretti and Ryan Hunter-Reay continued to pace the field in Friday practice at the Milwaukee Mile ahead of Saturday's Milwaukee IndyFest.
Marco Andretti topped the timing screens for a second time on Friday, after heading the second one-hour practice session on Friday ahead of this weekend's Milwaukee IndyFest race.

Andretti improved his time to 21.6811s (168.534mph) in the second hour-long stint, with his Andretti Autosport team mate Ryan Hunter-Reay just five hundreds of a second back. AJ Foyt Racing's Takuma Sato was third fastest ahead of a third member of the Andretti squad, EJ Viso.

There were two brief interruptions to team activity on the one-mile flat oval, both times for track inspections.

Qualifying takes place later at 4.15pm local time (10.15pm BST) and takes the usual IZOD IndyCar Series format for oval races of a two-lap averaged time trial rather than the three-round system used for road and street course events.
