Just minutes before the checkered fell for the 11-11:45am Verizon IndyCar Series practice, Penske teammates Will Power and Juan Pablo Montoya had a little dust up in the Turn 7-10 complex. Although it didn't appear any contact was made, Montoya pitted and exited his car visibly upset.

During his cool-down lap Power asked his team over the radio, "Is Montoya standing on pit lane giving me the wanker sign?".

James Davison, who's thought to be a front runner for one of the two open Indianapolis 500 seats, is at IMS. He spent a considerable amount of time speaking with Dale Coyne's lone Indy 500 confirmed driver, Pippa Mann, on pit lane during Verizon IndyCar Series qualifications.

Indy Lights Race 1 wrapped up the day, with Schmidt Peterson's Jack Harvey starting from pole and leading all 30 laps. Series newcomer Sean Rayhall and three time race winner this season Ed Jones rounded out the podium.

Early this morning, Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee was named pace card driver for tomorrow's Angie's List Grand Prix of Indianapolis.

“I’ve done some cool things around Indianapolis over the years, but the opportunity to drive a pace car at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has to be among the coolest,” McAfee said. “But it’s a serious job, too, and I’m lucky to have a two-time Indianapolis 500 (Arie Luyendyk) winner as my coach. I can’t wait to hit the track and learn all those left and right turns.”
