Rossi meets Herta at the last COTA Spring Training

Colton Herta was prepared to spend two days on the time charts of IndyCar's two-day spring training session at the Circuit of the Americas – until Andretti Autosport's Alexander Rossi finished first in his penultimate lap and only minutes into Wednesday's final Session.

Rossi's best lap of 1'46.8535 in the afternoon improved the Harding Steinbrenner Racing rookie by 0.1466 seconds – but left Herta with the fastest time of the two days on Tuesday afternoon with 1: 46.6258 minutes.


Third was Andrettis Ryan Hunter-Reay with 1: 47.1757 seconds, followed by Chip Ganassi Racing rookie Felix Rosenqvist, who led most of the afternoon with 1: 47.2941 minutes.

Graham Rahal completed the top five places when Hondas finished in first six places, with Scott Dixon sixth quickest. Simon Pagenaud was the fastest Chevy in seventh place, followed by Honda's James Hinchcliffe of Arrow Schmidt Peterson and Sant Coyne Racing of Santino Ferrucci and Penske of Josef Newgarden in tenth place.

Marcus Ericsson issued a red flag for light contact with the barrier in turn 2 at the beginning of the session. Will Power dropped out on lap 19 45 minutes before the end of the session and brought out another red flag. Ten minutes before the end of Jack Harvey in Turn 6, the action came to a halt again.

Tony Kanaan's # 14 Chevy spent a good deal of the day in the garage, like yesterday when the gearbox issues limited him to 16 laps. AJ Foyt Racing made some changes on Wednesday before Kanaan completed 20 laps. His best time of 1: 48.5553 minutes was the 23rd fastest among the 25 participants.

"We are making big changes and it takes time," said Kanaan.

The series will say goodbye to the first IndyCar race on March 22nd and 24th at COTA.
