St. Petersburg, FL Mar 23, 2012--Mike Conway and the ABC Supply team hit the streets of St. Petersburg today as the season opened for the IZOD IndyCar Series which saw 26 cars on track today.

After the first practice session Conway was eighth in the standings and he was 10th in the afternoon session. His Honda-powered ABC Supply car was the fourth quickest Honda-powered car with Ganassi Racing's Hondas occupying places third through fifth. Dario Franchitti was third quick with a time of 1:02.2232 while Conway's time was 1:02.5337. Will Power, in the Penske Chevrolet, set the pace with a time of 1:02.0077.

“We found quite a good direction on the ABC Supply car towards the end of the last practice session so we definitely improved from this morning," said Conway. "We’ve just got to see what we’ve got tomorrow. All in all, everyone’s working hard and we’re getting there.”

The teams have one more practice session tomorrow morning before qualifying gets underway at 1:55 p.m.
