Tony Kanaan led a Chip Ganassi Racing 1-2 in final practice at Road America on Saturday ahead of team-mate Scott Dixon.

Kanaan set a late quick lap of 1:42.6580 to pace the session, only 0.0113 seconds ahead of Dixon as the Ganassi team showed good pace during the session, confirmed by the sight of Max Chilton finishing up in fourth.

Will Power denied the Ganassi stable a clean sweep of the top three, with the Australian placing his Team Penske entry into the third position, while his team-mate and the current Verizon IndyCar Series championship leader Simon Pagenaud was fifth.

Ryan Hunter-Reay was the best placed of the Andretti Autosport drivers and the quickest Honda representatives in sixth, with the top five ahead of them all powered by Chevrolet.

Sebastien Bourdais, the winner of the last top level open wheel race at Road America back in 2007, was seventh for KVSH Racing, just ahead of AJ Foyt Racing’s Takuma Sato, while Alexander Rossi and Helio Castroneves completed the top ten.

The three Colombian drivers in the field propped up the session, with Gabby Chaves of Dale Coyne Racing twentieth ahead of Team Penske’s Juan Pablo Montoya, while Carlos Munoz suffered an engine issue without completing a representative lap time for Andretti Autosport.
