Zach HoldenSpeedway, IN - F1600 Formula F Championship Series morning practice from Indianapolis Motor Speedway was paced by Zach Holden, who sits tied for first in the Series point standings for K-Hill Motorsports.

"I think it's fair to say there is no place like Indy, so to lead practice is a very good start," said Holden. "With all the straights here the races in F1600 will be close, but I am confident that we will have a great opportunity to fight for wins this weekend."

Joe Colasacco was second in free practice for Auriana Racing, leading the Masters Class and setting his quick lap time without a draft.

Colasacco is pulling double race duty at Indianapolis, also racing in vintage events during the weekend.

"I'm feeling great about it," said Colasacco, who like most other drivers, is competing at the Brickyard for the first time. "I am cautiously optimistic at this point. Hopefully we have a clean race and I'm there at the end."

Yuven Sandaramoorthy followed in third, while the other driver atop the Series points standings, Matthew Cowley, was sixth quick in the 22-car field.
