Will Power posts fastest practice lap for IndyCar Grand Prix

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Australia's Will Power posted the fastest lap in Friday's practice for the IndyCar Grand Prix.

The Team Penske driver completed the 2.439-mile, 14-turn road course in 1 minute, 7.7684 seconds. He was followed by teammates Josef Newgarden at 1:08.0632 and two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Juan Pablo Montoya at 1:08.1897.

Defending 500 champ Alexander Rossi was the only Honda driver in the top five. He came in fourth at 1:08.2290. Rossi drives for Andretti Autosport.

The session ended after Colombian Carlos Munoz's car spun into the grass. But Munoz did not hit the wall or damage the car, a relief for his team owner, A.J. Foyt.

Qualifying for Saturday's race will be held later Friday afternoon.
