Well, last month during open testing Target Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon ran a lap at 226.012 mph in his No. 9 Honda-powered Dallara. Marlboro Team Penske’s Sam Hornish Jr. was second quickest with a lap of 225.355 followed by last year’s winner Dan Wheldon with a 224.450), 2005 Bombardier Rookie of the Year Danica Patricks Rayhall-Letterman Honda Panoz at 223.656 (who came in fourth at Indy last year) and Kosuke Matsuura in the Panasonic Honda Dalarra at 223.650. The NASCAR crew is running at Richmond,, Darlington the first two weekends of May, then some Open racing on the third week and the Coca Cola 600 at Lowes on May 28 at 5:30. All the races are evening or night races.
