Indianapolis 500 - Bump Day qualifying times

A rain-interrupted Sunday qualifying session washed the track clean and helped ensure that none of the top 24 qualifiers from Pole Day were troubled by the events of Bump Day.
Indianapolis 500 Bump Day was nearly rained off before Danica Patrick could make an attempt at getting into the race, but the weather cleared and she went on to set one of the fastest times of the day just behind Paul Tracy, which put her Andretti Autosports team mate Marco Andretti on the bubble.

Alex Lloyd bumped Marco with five minutes remaining and Marco was forced to go out as the final gun sounded, resulting in him bumping another of his Andretti team mates - Ryan Hunter-Reay - off the grid in order to reclaim his own spot.
