Justin 3rd quickest on first day in St Petersburg

Justin and Dreyer & Reinbold Racing had a productive first day's practice for the Honda Grand Prix of St Petersburg on Friday. After working through a series of set-up changes the No. 22 Z-Line Designs car finished the day 3rd fastest (1:03.0576, 102.763 mph) behind pacesetter Team Penske's Will Power (1:02.3200, 103.979 mph) and Scott Dixon of Chip Ganassi Racing (1:03.0299).

"We've been working constantly on the car today and have made some good improvements," said Justin. "I really like the way the Z-Line Designs car feels now. I didn't get the best lap out of it today, so I'm optimistic for tomorrow, but there are still some things that we want to try. We keep ticking everything off and so far everything that we have tried has worked. Tomorrow will be good and we'll keep working. Right now it's pretty clear what we need to do, so I think that it's good."

With North America having moved to summer time a few weeks ago, fans in the UK should note that on Saturday the UK is just 4 hours ahead of EDT -- changing to the customary +5 hours when the clocks go forward at 1.00am GMT (2.00am BST) on Sunday. Sky Sports 3 will have live race coverage from 8.30pm (BST) on Sunday night.
