Franchitti Leads Final Indy 500 Practice

The Target Chip Ganassi Racing duo of Dario Franchitti and Scott Dixon led Friday's traditional "Carb Day" final practice session at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in preparation for Sunday's 94th running of the Indianapolis 500.

This year's field is the fifth fastest in 500 history, ranging in speed from defending race winner Helio Castroneves's pole run of 227.990 mph to rookie final qualifier Sebastian Saavedra's qualifying speed of 223.634 mph. The 33-car starting field includes four previous race winners (Franchitti, Dixon, Castroneves and Dan Wheldon); and five rookies, led by Ana Beatriz - one of a record four women on the grid - who starts 21st.
