Herta Hustles to Top of St. Petersburg Practice; Title Contenders Searching for Speed

Colton Herta continued his strong stretch run form, leading an eventful practice today for the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. Herta topped the time sheets with his best lap of 1 minute, 1.1306 seconds in the No. Herta entered this event with results of first, fourth and second in his last three races, helping him climb to third in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES standings. Reigning series champion and St. Pete race winner Newgarden ended up eighth in practice at 1:01.6200 in the No. Like many drivers, Newgarden’s session was choppy due to traffic, and yellow and red flags. “That was only Lap 2, so I think we definitely have some speed for the top three. Behind Herta in the top five of practice was Andretti teammate James Hinchcliffe, second at 1:01.2279 in the No.
