He wants to move from road courses and set his eyes set on the first oval race of the season at Indianapolis Motor Speedway – the Indianapolis 500. ”I’m so ready to be done with the road course right now,” the defending Indy 500 winner said. ”I’m very excited to be back on an oval.” Inclement weather shortened the first day of Indianapolis 500 practice on Monday, less than 48 hours after teams and track workers made the conversion from the road course to the 2.5-mile oval. Sage Karam led the way in practice with a fast lap of 225.802 mph. Scott Dixon was second at 225.293, followed by Brazil’s Tony Kanaan (225.217), Marco Andretti (225.184), and JR Hildebrand (224.760).
