ALEXANDER ROSSI
No. 27 NAPA AUTO PARTS / AUTONATION HONDA

PRACTICE RESULT-13th

PRACTICE SPEED-225.324 mph

A rain-washed morning at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway delayed the final practice session of the Month of May. After the weather delay, the field of 33 took to the track for the final Carb Day practice to fine-tune setups for the 105th Running of the Indianapolis 500 Presented by Gainbridge with the two-hour session only cut short by a few minutes due to additional rain.

Sunday’s coverage for the Indianapolis 500 kicks off with the pre-race show on NBC Sports Network at 9 a.m. ET leading into the race broadcast on NBC at 11 a.m. ET.

It was a pretty wild Carb Day for us. We started with a little fuel issue in pit lane so hopefully that’s the only fuel issue we have in Indianapolis this year. The car was a lot different in the cold conditions. I think we kind of expected that, but were surprised how different it was from the heat last week. The first hour was really challenging, but the team did a good job of understanding what we needed to do to get better and by the end we were really happy with the race car. I feel like we can have a great day on Sunday.”

TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
