Prendeville Records Fifth-Fastest Time Tuesday at IMS Test

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., May 5 - Everything came up in fives for Andrew Prendeville on Cinco de Mayo.

He posted the fifth-fastest time in five hours of Firestone Indy Lights testing on the fifth day of the fifth month of the year Tuesday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Team Moore Racing unloaded a race car that was prepared for the task and Prendeville immediately got to work. The Henderson, Nev.-based driver recorded the fifth-fastest lap of the day on the ninth of 72 laps he took around the 2.5-mile oval in the bright yellow Xtreme Coil Drilling No. 2. His fastest lap was timed in 47.1923 seconds for an average speed of 190.709 miles per hour. That was only 0.1403 of a second slower than the fastest lap of the day recorded by any of the 21 drivers testing, which was the 47.0520 (191.278 mph) lap posted by Sebastian Saavedra.

"The Team Moore Racing car was very good," Prendeville said after the test. "It was a good day for us. We got 72 laps in, and we had a trouble-free day. We have a good car for the race."

That race is the Firestone Freedom 100 at IMS on Friday, May 22.

The team will be back at IMS on Community Day, Wednesday, May 20, where the Firestone Indy Lights drivers will greet their fans at an autograph session at 11 a.m. on Legends Row.
