After an unusually wet month of May, more rain showers limited the final IndyCar practice session on Friday and Justin's Carb Day running for Sunday's Indy 500 was confined to a single lap in the No. 02 McDonald's car.

"We left the pits to try and do our first run and as soon as I got to the end of pit lane it was yellow, so we managed an installation lap and that was it," said Justin. "It's a shame, but I'm sure everything will be fine."

As well as being unable to try out their Race Day set-up, the lack of running has given Justin little time to get used to running in traffic around the 2.5 mile oval. "I'm starting the race from the inside of the row and its obviously going to be tricky since we've had so little time to go three-wide through the turns due to the weather," added Justin. "It's going to be fun, but difficult. I'd be happy to finish on the lead lap and be in the top-10."

The race starts just after 1pm EDT (6pm in the UK). Fans in the US will find pre-race coverage from 11am EDT on ESPN2, with ABC covering events from noon into the race itself. For viewers in the UK, coverage on Sky Sports 3 starts at 5.30pm BST.
