Herta leads Indy GP warm-up


Colton Herta continued his promising Indy GP weekend by topping the final warm-up session ahead of this afternoon’s IndyCar Grand Prix at Indianapolis.

Herta, who qualified fourth for the race, led the way Saturday morning with a 1m09.2003s in his No. 88 Harding Steinbrenner Honda backed by GESS International — which incidentally confirmed today it would also provide associate sponsorship for all four cars of Harding Steinbrenner partner Andretti Autosport for this race and all five Andretti cars in the Indianapolis 500.

Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon was second, 0.38s back, ahead of the Rahal Letterman Lanigan duo of Takuma Sato and Graham Rahal. Sebastien Bourdais in the Dale Coyne Racing with Vasser-Sullivan entry Honda entry rounded out the top five, while the fastest Chevrolet-powered car was Max Chilton’s Carlin entry, in seventh.


UP NEXT: The forecast is still for rain ahead of the 3:40pm ET scheduled start of today’s race.
