Power leads wet second practice at NOLA

Will Power takes the Chevrolet torch from Tony Kanaan and goes to the top of the charts in the second practice session of the weekend.

In a session marred by a lot of rain, Will Power was able to pull his car to the top of the timesheet in the second practice session at NOLA Motorsports Park for the inaugural Indy Grand Prix of Louisiana.

Despite the track conditions, Power was able to come up with a fast lap of 1:20.1704, about 1.2 seconds off of his fastest time in the first session. Second fastest was Ryan Hunter-Reay, just over a tenth of a second off of Power’s time while Simon Pagenaud, Stefano Colette and Simona de Silvestro rounded out the top five.

Despite their dry weather struggles earlier today, Honda seemed to have it together in the great equalizer known as wet conditions since Hunter-Reay and de Silvestro managed to get in the top five while Munoz, Sato and Rahal were seventh, ninth and tenth in the session, respectively.

Only 18 cars took to the track out of the 24 entered. The missing six were Scott Dixon, Tony Kanaan, Josef Newgarden, Sage Karam, Carlos Huertas and Francesco Dracone.

The next practice session for IndyCar is 12:30 PM local time.
