2013 Indy 500: Qualifying draw

The order in which drivers will complete their initial qualifying runs for the 97th running of the Indianapolis 500 has been decided by blind draw.
The draw deciding the order in which the 2013 field of drivers will make their qualifying runs at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Saturday has been made.

Comprising all 68 official entries on the official entry list, the first names driver running in their primary car is former Indy 500 winner Scott Dixon who will have the honour of setting the first benchmark effort on Pole Day. The final runner in the first round of qualifying efforts will be Oriol Servia.

Entries without drivers are unlikely to play a part on Saturday but may be a factor on Sunday's Bump Day. Most drivers will likely waive their back-up 'T' car runs.

Qualification laps take the form of four consecutive timed laps in addition to warm-up and cool-down tours, and take place between 11am and 4pm EST. At the end of that time the cars in positions 10 through 24 are fixed while the top nine take part in a ninety minute shootout to decide the front three rows. The back three rows are decided on Sunday, and the chance that if there are more than 33 cars bidding to make the grid then even one of the top 24 could end up being 'bumped' out of the field if times are sufficiently fast.
