Detroit IndyCar: Graham Rahal fastest in first practice

Despite dealing with an ankle injury after his wild crash in the Indianapolis 500, Scott Dixon battled past the pain barrier to take second place, moving into the lead of the drivers' championship in the process. "I said yesterday I felt like if we could qualify up front then I could dominate and I took some heat from other drivers for saying it but I don't say things like that unless I mean it".

Mikhail Aleshin, of Russian Federation, drives through the second turn during the first race of the IndyCar Detroit Grand Prix auto racing doubleheader, Saturday, June 3, 2017, in Detroit.

Rahal ended an eight-year pole drought earlier in the day before retaining his lead at the start despite coming under pressure from Penske's Helio Castroneves, with the Brazilian eager to pick up his first victory in three years. "Physically for me, it was tougher than normal", said Dixon.

Rahal's wife, Courtney Force, escaped without injury in a qualifying run Friday in Epping, N.H. Her auto, owned by her father, John Force, had a fuel line burst to create the spectacular visual.

Indianapolis 500 victor Takuma Sato was eighth with his Honda-powered vehicle for Andretti Autosport.

Newgarden and Alexander Rossi rounded out the top five.

Federal judge tosses out life sentences for DC sniper Malvo
Fairfax County Commonwealth's Attorney Ray Morrogh told the paper that the state can appeal Jackson's ruling. Now 32, Malvo is serving multiple life sentences at Red Onion State Prison in Virginia, a supermax prison.

Dixon, the Indy 500 pole victor, didn't miss a beat despite a small fracture in his foot. Charlie Kimball couldn't avoid a slowing Conor Daly on the backstretch, and the contact that followed broke a piece of Kimball's vehicle.

IndyCar will conclude its only doubleheader of races Sunday on Belle Isle. "But she seems to be OK".

"I'm over the frustration already", he said. "It's hard. Obviously when you have it, you don't want to miss opportunities, but hopefully the weather holds up and we can do it again".
