INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The final warmup session for the IndyCar Grand Prix was stopped twice because of smoke from an engine and geese.
The first red flag waved when smoke started billowing from the back of Marco Andretti’s No. 98 car. A few minutes after practice resumed, the action was stopped when geese appeared in the 12th turn.
Three -time Indianapolis 500 champion Helio Castroneves was forced to sit out the final five minutes because he took the checkered flag twice in the second of three qualifying rounds Friday.
The race will be held Saturday afternoon.
