INDIANAPOLIS, MAY 25 -- John Andretti turned his final practice laps Friday as the 33 starters completed their last one-hour session in preparation for Sunday's 91st Indianapolis 500.

Andretti had a best lap of 220.049 miles an hour around the 2 ½-mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval in his Camping World Panther Dallara/Honda.

"I feel really good about it," Andretti said, whose cousin Michael and nephew, Marco, are also in the field. "It's the first time I've really been in traffic, so I'm learning that a lot. Every time I learn something, I come back and ask (Panther Racing teammate) Vitor (Meira) and I also talk to Michael.

"I think we have a pretty good car. I don't want to be in the biggest hurry (at the start) but I don't want to fall too far back."
