By the Numbers: Morning Practice Results | Qualifying Order
Jack Harvey was the fastest driver during Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge practice this morning at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the last session before Crown Royal Armed Forces Qualifying.
Harvey's best lap was 230.425 mph under cloudy skies in the No. 60 AutoNation/SiriusXM Honda. That lap came without the benefit of an aerodynamic tow, as drivers and teams put the final touches on their qualifying setups.
Reigning and two-time Indy 500 winner Takuma Sato was second at 230.312 in the No. 30 Panasonic/PeopleReady Honda. 2014 "500" winner Ryan Hunter-Reay was third at 230.196 in the No. 28 DHL Honda.
Rookie Scott McLaughlin was the fastest Chevrolet-powered driver, fourth at 229.875 in the No. 3 Pennzoil Team Penske Chevrolet. His teammate, 2019 Indy winner Simon Pagenaud, rounded out the top five at 229.855 in the No. 22 Menards Team Penske Chevrolet.
Only nine of the 35 drivers turned laps in the one-hour session.
Qualifying starts at noon (ET) and continues until 5:50 p.m., with live coverage from noon-6 p.m. on Peacock, 2-3 p.m. on NBC and 3-6 p.m. on NBCSN. The first 30 spots in the field will be locked in, with positions 10-30 set today. The nine fastest drivers today will compete for the NTT P1 Award for pole during the Firestone Fast Nine Shootout tomorrow, while five drivers will vie for the final three spots in the field in Last Chance Qualifying tomorrow.
Six-time and reigning NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Scott Dixon should be the first driver on track today in qualifying in the No. 9 PNC Bank Grow Up Great Honda, as his team drew the No. 1 spot in the qualifying order.
