Will Power - photo © IndyCar SeriesThree-time and defending Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg champion Helio Castroneves said early in the morning that he wanted to “make sure to get in some good laps” on the 1.8-mile, 14-turn street circuit.

Twenty-five cars did just that in the initial practice session of the IZOD IndyCar Series season. In fact, eight cars recorded a lap quicker than the record race lap set in 2006 by Castroneves. Reigning series champion Ryan Hunter-Reay led the way at 1 minute, 2.4534 seconds — and was only 1.5 seconds off the track record.
