Junqueira on Top on Second Day

Weather conditions improved from the first day of testing on Tuesday, allowing Junqueira to beat Tuesday's fastest runner Paul Tracy by six tenths of a second.

Junqueira said: "We did a lot of work and some very long runs so that we could find things for our race setup. I think it went pretty well."

Mexican Mario Dominguez was second fastest ahead of Tracy. Last season's Milwaukee winner Ryan Hunter-Reay was fourth, despite an accident early in the afternoon session.

He went to hospital for precautionary X-Rays and returned to the track before the end of the day.
