Newgarden leads Indy 500 practice; Alonso, Rosenqvist hit wal…

Newgarden, the NTT IndyCar Series points leader after five of 17 races, ran the fastest of more than 3,200 laps turned by 36 drivers on the famed 2.5-mile oval Tuesday, at 228.856 mph in the No. 2 Shell V-Power Nitro Plus Team Penske Chevrolet.
“I think we need to be a bit better in traffic,” said Newgarden, the 2017 series champion.
“It was understeer on the car, and even if I lifted the throttle on the entry of the corner, it was not enough, and I lost completely the front aero,” said Alonso, the two-time Formula 1 champion and 2017 Indy 500 rookie of the year.
