INDIANAPOLIS – Owing to impending severe weather, qualifying for the 101st Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil has been placed on indefinite hold.

Cars were going through tech inspection but are now being sent back to the garages.

Further official updates will follow when available. A primer for qualifying is linked here.

Here’s the radar. Oy.

On a lighter note, it appears as track activity is going down, humor in the paddock and the bus lot is going up.
