Andretti Autosport continued to set the pace at the end of the sixth day of practice for the Indianapolis 500, with Carlos Munoz leading team-mates Ryan Hunter-Reay and Marco Andretti for a 1-2-3 Andretti sweep of the timesheets. Munoz set the fastest time so far this week with his 225.163mph lap, which came during a late flurry of activity following a restart with 20 minutes of running left. “The fastest lap was an unbelievable tow,” Munoz said

Takuma Sato claimed his first IndyCar victory in a chaotic race around the streets of Long Beach. Sato ran among the frontrunners throughout the afternoon, and moved into the lead as the field cycled through its pitstops during a caution period on lap 31. From there, both he and his team were flawless – Sato was quick when he needed to be, looked after his tyres, enjoyed perfect service in the pits, and never appeared to have any problems managing the gap between himself and his pursuers

Dario Franchitti will start Sunday’s IndyCar race at Long Beach from pole position after triumphing in a hard-fought qualifying session. Ganassi driver Franchitti, who came into the Long Beach weekend last in the points standings after two disastrous opening races, used his final flying lap to deliver a 1m07.2379s that improved the benchmark laid down by Ryan Hunter-Reay by 0.0555 seconds. Hunter-Reay’s time was still good enough to keep him on the front row for Andretti, although Penske’s Will Power was only a further 0.05s in arrears.
April 19th, 2013
Ryan Hunter-Reay went fastest in a patchy second IndyCar practice session at Long Beach, with track time interrupted four times by red flags. Hunter-Reay produced a 1m09.4224s to take the top spot for Andretti Autosport, leaving Rahal Letterman Lanigan’s series returnee Mike Conway second-quickest with a time just 0.0379 seconds off that set by the reigning champion. Early leader Will Power finished up with the third-best lap in his Penske entry, although the constant interruptions made it hard for all teams to string together meaningful runs

April 17, 2013 Dear Drivers, It’s the Target Racing Indy car drivers here, with some (unsolicited) advice as you prepare to hit the track this weekend at The Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach Pro/Celebrity Race. Think you can just put on a fire suit and slide into a race car for 10 adrenaline-pumping laps just like that? Not so fast. We’re talking to each and every one of you: Jackson Rathbone, Wanda Sykes, Michelle Rodriguez, Kate del Castillo, Cristian Castro, Jesse Metcalfe, Adam Carolla, Mark Steines, Jenna Elfman and Rutledge Wood.

Except you, Rodriguez—we were pretty impressed by your skills in [...]

Ryan Hunter-Reay fought off Scott Dixon to become the first non-Penske driver to win an IndyCar race at Barber Motorsports Park. Hunter-Reay was in contention throughout the race, but he moved into the lead for the final time when he took advantage of his softer red tyres to pass primary tyre-shod Helio Castroneves with 15 laps to go. Castroneves immediately fell victim to Dixon as well, and what had been a 1.2-second advantage to the American was swiftly eroded as Dixon closed him down

Ryan Briscoe is expected to return to Ganassi’s IndyCar line-up for a one-off appearance at the Indianapolis 500 in May. The Australian, currently out of a drive after Penske scaled down to two full-time cars at the end of last year, spent a season with Ganassi in 2005. That stint ended with a heavy crash at Chicagoland that ruled him out of the final two rounds, but the 31-year-old has reportedly agreed terms to be reunited with the team in a fourth car at Indianapolis.
