Tony Kanaan led a tightly contested final practice session for Sunday's 103rd Running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge.

The 2013 race winner used a draft to log a quick lap at 39.9083s averaging 225.517 mph. A legion of Hondas followed him led by Dale Coyne Racing rookie Santino Ferrucci who clocked a hot lap of 39.9137s (225.486 mph).

A tandem of Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing Hondas took third and fourth led by 2017 winner Takuma Sato and followed by rookie Jordan King and completing the top five was four-time Indy starter James Davison in the Dale Coyne Byrd-Hollinger-Belardi Honda entry.

Four-time Indy car champ Sebastien Bourdais was sixth while 2016 champ Alexander Rossi ended up seventh and 2015 third-place finisher Charlie Kimball ended up eighth.

The highest qualified rookie of the race Colton Herta ended up ninth and defending 500 champ Will Power rounded out the top ten.

Team Penske's remaining three entries ended up scattered throughout the leaderboard with Helio Castroneves ending up 12th just ahead of series points leader Josef Newgarden in 13th. Newgarden logged 72 laps - the most of any driver.

Pole sitter Simon Pagenaud had an unspectacular session and ended up 22nd quickest.
