Memorial Day is right around the corner and that means it’s time for the Indianapolis 500. The race takes place on Sunday May 29, but in the meantime the field is being settled with weekend qualifying a week early.
Qualification is a two-day process. Positions 13 to 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 on Saturday have a guaranteed tryout. The fastest six advance to a final qualifying round while positions 7-12 lock into those spots.
At 5:10 p.m., the last round of qualifying begins and each of the six drivers is guaranteed a test. Pole position up to P6 will be determined from these times.
Scott Dixon enters the final day of qualifying as the favorite to win next Sunday’s race with +700 odds on DraftKings Sportsbook. Pato O’Ward and Alex Palou follow at +800, Josef Newgarden is fourth at +1100 and Colton Herta and Will Power close the top five at +1200.
If you’re not near a TV to watch Sunday qualifying, it will also be available live on Peacock.
