Memorial Day is just around the corner and that means it’s time for the Indianapolis 500. The race runs Sunday, May 29, but in the meantime, the field is being settled with weekend qualifying a week earlier.
Qualifying is a two-day process. Positions 13-32 were settled on Saturday. On Sunday, there will be two qualifying rounds to finalize the top 12 positions. Qualifying opens at 4 p.m. on NBC with the Top 12 qualifying event. The 12 fastest cars from Saturday have one guaranteed attempt. The six fastest advance to a final round of qualifying while positions 7-12 lock into those spots.
At 5:10 p.m., the final round of qualifying begins and each of the six drivers are guaranteed one attempt. The pole position through P6 will be determined from those times.
Scott Dixon comes into the final day of qualifying as the favorite to win next Sunday’s race with +700 odds at DraftKings Sportsbook. Pato O’Ward and Alex Palou follow at +800, Josef Newgarden is fourth at +1100 and Colton Herta and Will Power close out the top five at +1200.
If you aren’t around a TV to watch Sunday qualifying, it will also be available via live stream on Peacock.
