0 Comments

Qualifying is in the books for the 99th Indianapolis 500, with Scott Dixon on the pole position (Verizon P1 Award) for the 2015 edition of the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing.”

Beyond Dixon’s joy and the relief of the last row of drivers making the field lie 29 other stories to comprise this year’s field of 33.

Here’s the unofficial starting grid, with row, car number, driver, car name and speed.

Note the No. 19 Dale Coyne Racing Honda, which was qualified in the 21st position by Tristan Vautier, will move to 33rd and last place with a driver change coming and James Davison replacing Vautier.

Other spots could change based on if backup cars are required¬†following Monday’s final full day of practice.
