Andretti team continues to top Indy speed chart
Last Updated: 209 days ago
INDIANAPOLIS - Andretti Autosport is off to a great start at Indianapolis.
After four days of practice, the five teammates driving for Michael Andretti have been among the fastest cars on Indy's 2.5-mile oval. And it doesn't seem to matter who's driving what.
At one point Tuesday, James Hinchcliffe and Marco Andretti swapped cars and still posted good times. Even Colombian Carlos Munoz, who passed his rookie test Saturday, has been near the top.
Hinchcliffe posted the top lap speed of the day Tuesday -- in Marco Andretti's car -- at 224.210 mph.
"Marco's pretty upset with the fact I got the fastest lap in his car," Hinchcliffe joked.
Andretti, who posted the top speed in Monday's practice, had the third top speed Tuesday, at 223.570 mph.
Andretti's team came to Indy with defending series champ and St. Petersburg winner Ryan Hunter-Reay, and Hinchcliffe, who has won two of the other three races. Hinchcliffe, Marco Andretti and Hunter-Ready are all in the top six in points, too.
Andretti made some changes during the offseason, and it's paid big dividends.
