This came after a disrupted group one session left the likes of championship leader Scott Dixon and Simon Pagenaud stranded in the midfield after an off for Takuma Sato on his Red tyre out-lap.
IndyCar Harvest GP & Indianapolis 500 winner Sato beached his Rahal Letterman Laningan entry in the Turn 2 gravel with three minutes remaining on the clock, just as the 12 drivers in that group were preparing to try and beat their Black tyre times.
With the IndyCar Harvest GP Race guaranteed five minutes of track time having passed for the group, the clock ran out while Sato’s car was removed from the gravel, distributing some of it around the circuit as he made his way back to the pits.No Tv Pass
