Palou Jumps to Top of Pre-Qualifying Practice at Barber

Once again, Alex Palou turned Barber Motorsports Park into his personal playground by leading practice Saturday morning for the Children’s of Alabama Indy Grand Prix. Palou topped the 45-minute session with a best lap of 1 minute, 6.2781 seconds in the No. That’s the quickest lap of the weekend, well ahead of the top lap of 1:06.6610 turned by Scott McLaughlin in practice Friday. “I don’t know if practice results are true, with the traffic and stuff, but I’m happy with the car. Two-time series champion Josef Newgarden was second in practice this morning at 1:06.5133 in the No. 9 PNC Bank Chip Ganassi Racing Honda, with Colton Herta rounding out the top five at 1:06.6788 in the No. 8 Huski Chocolate Chip Ganassi Racing Honda after ending up fifth in practice Friday.
