Cars 32 and 33 of the 33 entered for this year’s Indianapolis 500 are making their first laps of the month today.
Sebastien Bourdais shook down the No. 33 Always Evolving Racing/KV Racing Technology Chevrolet and in 10 laps got it up to 218.688 mph, before handing over to rookie James Davison to complete his Rookie Orientation Program.
Past 4:15 p.m. ET, the track action has been stopped twice to allow Davison time to run. He’s completed more than 25 laps and is through the first phase of his ROP.
Buddy Lazier has also been out in the No. 91 Wynn Institute Chevrolet for his Lazier Partners Racing team. Lazier, the 1996 Indianapolis 500 champion, has posted a flier of 217.844 in 11 laps.
The only car that has not been on track thus far is Jack Hawksworth, as the BHA/BBM with Curb-Agajanian team makes repairs to the No. 98 Honda after its accident yesterday.
