INDIANAPOLIS – Storms have interrupted Fast Friday, the last practice day before qualifying for the 101st Indianapolis 500.

Rain hit about an hour and a half into the session. Sebastien Bourdais, a top competitor on road and street courses but not usually a contender on super speedways, had the best lap in the abbreviated practice period at 233.116 mph in his Dallara-Honda.

Next were Andretti Autosport teammates Ryan Hunter-Reay and Takuma Sato, also with Honda power, at 232.132 mph and 231.969 mph, respectively.

Leading the Chevrolet charge was Juan Pablo Montoya with a lap at 231.682 mph. The two-time Indianapolis 500 winner lost his full-time ride with Team Penske after last season in favor of Josef Newgarden, but is back competing for The Captain this May.

Two-time Formula One world champion Fernando Alonso was fifth on the speed charts at 231.549 mph. Alonso is driving a Dallara-Honda out of the Andretti stable.
