Newgarden Rebounds To Lead Opening Practice at St. Pete

Like any great athlete after a tough performance, Josef Newgarden apparently has no mental memory and a lot of muscle memory. Two-time NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Newgarden posted a top lap of 1 minute, .8029 of a second in the No. 2 Hitachi Team Penske Chevrolet in a very competitive session with times bunched together up and down the time sheet. It was a shame we just didn’t even really get to be in the race (at Barber). 2014 series champion Will Power completed a Team Penske sweep of the top two spots, slotting in second at 1:00.8102 in the No. Team Penske ended up with three of the top five spots, as 2016 series champion Simon Pagenaud rounded out the top five at 1:00.8992 in the No.
