Kanaan took over for the latter part of the session and reached 224.610 mph in 14 total practice laps. His fast lap was 13th-best today.

Greg Ray, who will hope to make the field during final "Bump Day" qualifying on Sunday, logged the fastest lap of the day at 227.291 mph. Polesitter Bruno Junqueira was second-fastest at 226.598 mph before damaging his car in a pit-lane accident this afternoon. Ray's teammate, Airton Dare, who also has yet to qualify for the May 26 main event, was third-fastest today at 226.484 mph.

There were two rain delays this afternoon for a total of 1 hour, 58 minutes.

Giaffone will start fourth and Kanaan fifth in the main event a week from Sunday. Practice resumes Friday.
