Tomas Scheckter and Dreyer and Reinbold Racing announced Thursday that the South African driver will compete with the Indianapolis-based team for nine races this season. Team co-owner Dennis Reinbold said the nine races were picked from a budget perspective, with Scheckter sitting out the road course races at Watkins Glen, Mid Ohio and Infineon Raceway. The team, sponsored by MonaVie, will compete in the Canadian rounds at Toronto and Edmonton.

Jaques Lazier missed practice on Thursday as his team was still making repairs to the car that Stanton Barrett crashed in practice at Milwaukee.

Danica Patrick and Marco Andretti opted not to participate in Friday's practice session due to weather conditions. With the race run under the lights, race conditions would be vastly different from the heat of the afternoon's practice session.
