Ganassi dominate second practice

Chip Ganassi Racing maintained its superiority in the second Friday practice session at Homestead, with reigning champion Dan Wheldon setting the fastest time

His team-mate Scott Dixon, who had been quickest in the morning, was second, despite losing a little time with a cut tyre. Scott Sharp had a similar problem, amid suggestions that the strong wind at the Miami oval was bringing debris onto the track.

Penske duo Helio Castroneves and Sam Hornish Jr were third and fourth, ahead of Andretti-Green's Tony Kanaan and Bryan Herta.

Vitor Meira put his Panther Racing Dallara-Honda into the wall only a few minutes into the session. The Brazilian was unhurt, but had to sit out of the rest of the afternoon.

Practice two times:
