Castroneves Top Toyota In Tuesday's Indy Practice

- Helio Castroneves (Marlboro Toyota) was the top Toyota-powered car for the second consecutive day as he led three Toyota drivers into the top 10 in Tuesday's practice for the 88th running of the Indianapolis 500. The two-time Indianapolis 500 winner was fourth overall on the day. Castroneves has now placed in the top four in each of the first three days with a second, first and now a fourth. He will be trying to improve upon the greatest finishing record in the history of the Indianapolis 500 with two wins and a second in three races.

- Sam Hornish, Castroneves' Marlboro Team Penske teammate, placed sixth overall and was the second-fastest Toyota. After missing Sunday's opening day due to a flu bug, Hornish has now placed in the top six on each of his two days on-track. Hornish won the season-opening Toyota Indy 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

- After placing first and second overall on the first two days of Indy practice, Scott Dixon spent a portion of the day sidelined by mechanical difficulties, yet, still placed in the top 10 for the third straight day with a 10th overall.
