Meira Finishes 12th on Chart During Another Rain-Shortened Practice

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- In what has been a theme this month at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, rain cut short Wednesday's practice day at the 2.5-mile oval. Panther Racing and driver Vitor Meira finished 12th on the speed chart during the first practice session since this past weekend's Pole Day qualifications were rained out. All 33 cars for the race will qualify this coming Saturday at noon.

Vitor Meira - #4 Panther Racing

"We focused today on our race setup because that's what is most important. We are continuing to head in the right direction and I'm happy with the progress. The key here at Indianapolis is getting as much mechanical grip as possible, and that's what most of the teams are focused on. We plan on making some big changes tomorrow and I'm looking forward to that. Today was our first full tank run and we are right on schedule."
