INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Carlos Munoz shot straight to the top of the Indianapolis 500 speed chart Sunday.

A little more than 24 hours after passing his rookie test, the Colombian narrowly averted a collision with teammate Marco Andretti in the first turn and posted the fastest lap in two practice sessions by going 223.023 mph on a cold, windy day.

Despite the near mishap, Andretti Autosport still claimed four of the top six spots Sunday. Defending series champ Ryan Hunter-Reay posted Sunday's second-fastest time at 222.825. Venezuela's E.J. Viso was third at 222.523. Andretti was fourth at 222.485 and James Hinchcliffe was sixth at 220.907.

The only non-Andretti driver among the top six was rookie AJ Allmendinger, who was fifth at 221.279. He drives for Penske Racing.

Speeds should increase later this week.
