INDIANAPOLIS - Dario Franchitti and Scott Dixon ran the fastest laps Friday in final practice for Sunday's Indianapolis 500.
Franchitti topped the speed chart at 222.360 mph on "Carb Day," a throwback term to past years when mechanics would make their final pre-race tune-ups to the engines' carburetors.
Dixon, his teammate at Chip Ganassi Racing, was next at 222.274 mph. Marco Andretti was third at 221.702 mph around the rectangular, 2.5-mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Franchitti is a two-time winner of the race, in 2007 and 2010, and Dixon won in 2008.
In last weekend's qualifying to set the race's 33-car field, neither driver qualified particularly well. Dixon will start the race in 15th and Franchitti in the 16th spot.
