Louis Foster led the way in Indy Pro 2000 practice at Mid-Ohio, as test pacesetter Salvador de Alba failed to register a time.

De Alba was quickest in Thursday’s testing for Jay Howard Driver Development ahead of Foster but triggered a red flag early in the Friday morning practice session and was left with no laptime on the board.

Championship leader Foster consistently improved his time as the session reached its conclusion. With his final lap after the chequered flag he became the first and only driver to dip below the 1m19s mark, registering a 1m18.9821s.

That was 0.2806 seconds faster than Kiko Porto, who jumped up into second place on his last lap.

Jack William Miller briefly took top spot away from Foster inside the final five minutes and ended up third, just ahead of Enaam Ahmed.

Nolann Siegel was fifth in front of Jack William Miller, Yuven Sundaramoorthy and Braden Eves. Reece Gold, currently second in the standings, was nith with Josh Green 10th.
