Marco Andretti denied a trio of Team Penske drivers to set the pace in the second practice session at Barber Motorsports Park on Friday, with the Andretti Autosport racer ending 0.0320 seconds clear of Will Power.

As drivers used the red-walled alternate tyres for the first time this weekend, Andretti hit the front with a lap of 1:07.7134s, while Penske continued their good form into second session after locking out the top four in the first, with Power second ahead of team-mates Simon Pagenaud and Helio Castroneves.

Scott Dixon and Charlie Kimball ended the session fifth and sixth respectively for Chip Ganassi Racing, ahead of Schmidt Peterson Motorsport’s Mikhail Aleshin, while the fourth Penske of Josef Newgarden ended up eighth, albeit just half a second shy of the outright pace.

Championship leader Sebastien Bourdais was ninth fastest for Dale Coyne Racing, while Ryan Hunter-Reay completed the top ten for Andretti Autosport despite a late brush with the barriers at turn two that he appeared to get away with unscathed.

There were two red flags during the 45-minute session, with Max Chilton suffering an early spin to cause the first while Ed Jones stopped on track after his Dale Coyne Racing machine switched itself off.
