INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Defending Indy 500 champion Tony Kanaan turned the fastest lap of Carb Day, leading a stable of Ganassi Racing teams that have finally found some speed after a slow week of qualifying.

Kanaan turned a lap of 227.838 mph during the hour-long session. He was followed by teammate Scott Dixon, who had a lap of 227.773 mph. Townsend Bell, three-time champ Helio Castroneves and rookie Mikhail Aleshin rounded out the top five.

Juan Pablo Montoya was ninth fastest Friday in his return to the Brickyard. Kurt Busch was 15th in Marco Andretti's backup car after wrecking his own car during practice.

Pole-sitter Ed Carpenter was 13th.
