Different circuit, different downforce levels and a different city, but the same guy is on top as he was on Sunday in the Indianapolis 500.

Ryan Hunter-Reay paced the first of two Friday 45-minute practice sessions for the Chevrolet Indy Dual in Detroit Presented by Quicken Loans at Belle Isle Park. Hunter-Reay, driving the No. 28 DHL Honda, clocked in at 1:18.8595 and was one of three drivers in the 1:18 range.

The other two to do so were Justin Wilson and Helio Castroneves. Simon Pagenaud and Tony Kanaan completed the top five.

Second practice occurs from 3:20 to 4:05 p.m.

Here’s your session times.
