Practice has been underway for several days and the track is really starting to heat up. Weather could be a factor as teams prepare to find the speed needed to sit on the pole for the 90th running of the Indianapolis 500. If teams lose track time due to weather on Wednesday and Thursday, Fast Friday will be Frenzy Friday too.

Action on the local tracks is plentiful too with the King of Indiana Sprint Car Series at Gas City on Friday night and the USAC National Sprint Car Series at Terre Haute on Saturday night and Kokomo on Sunday night.
