“It’s been a long time coming, that’s for sure,” Chilton told Express Sport.
“We obviously failed to qualify a year ago so the last time I did this race was in 2018. It seems quite a long time ago. I haven’t been on oval [track] for 18 months.
“So it’s been sort of, not a shock to the system, but an awakening.
“But [practice] was a good, everything went smoothly. The car was performing how we wanted it with a few adjustments we needed to see.
“The thing I like about Indy is we get lots of practice. Even though the practice has been heavily reduced this year, we’ve still got three days practice before qualifying and also there’s no Bump Day.”
