CHAMPCAR/CART: Indy 500 Practice Speed Chart as of May 11

Lyn St. James seems to me moving along nicely, as is Mauricio Gugelmin. Rahal and Groff continue to slip down the field. Overall the order has mostly stabilized, maybe entirely because of wednesday's gusting winds. All data in this chart...

Lyn St. James seems to me moving along nicely, as is Mauricio Gugelmin. Rahal and Groff continue to slip down the field.

Overall the order has mostly stabilized, maybe entirely because of wednesday's gusting winds.

All data in this chart from the daily postings of Rob Unglenieks during the month of May. Many thanks for all this info!

I've compressed the information because as the days add up, I want to keep providing a comprehensive speed chart. Send me e-mail if you find any mistakes I (or sort) introduced, or if you have any comments.
