Together the two Team Penske drivers were more than a half second quicker than anyone else. Briscoe also led testing on March 5 as the second group of IndyCar Series drivers completed a day and a half of testing. A previous group of drivers tested on the 1.7-mile, 11-turn circuit March 3-4.
"The track was really quick this afternoon; Helio turned a fast lap mid-session, so we had something to shoot for," Briscoe said. "We went out on new tires, but we weren't quite happy with the car, so I had to come in. We made a change, which proved to be very effective. It is amazing what a small adjustment can do to lap times around this circuit. The Team Penske car was performing very well at the end of the session and I think we made a lot of progress today."
Target Chip Ganassi Racing teammates Dan Wheldon and Scott Dixon were third and fourth, respectively.
Overall, eight drivers combined for 790 laps.
