Indy 500: Starting grid

20 May 2012

The Indy 500 will have a full starting grid of 33 cars when the green flag flies on Sunday, May 27 for the 96th running of the greatest spectacle in motor sport at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The positions were set in three stages: positions 10 through 24 were locked in by the times set on Pole Day (Saturday, May 19) before 4pm.

The top nine after that session then set new qualifying times in a further 90 minute session on Pole Day, to determine the order of the front three rows.

Finally, any cars that had not qualified in the top 24 were able to make new qualifying runs on Bump Day (Sunday, May 20) to set their positions on the back three rows of the grid.

For details of lap speeds and times, see Pole Day qualifying times and Bump Day qualifying times.
