IndyCar has released the order for Saturday’s qualifying session, which will set the lineups for both races this weekend at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway.
The order was set by the points standings with championship leader Scott Dixon going last of the 23 drivers. Ed Carpenter will make the first laps.
Drivers will make two laps with the first determining the starting spot in Saturday’s race (3 p.m. ET on NBCSN, NBC Sports App and NBC Sports.com). The second lap will set the starting lineup for Sunday’s race (3 p.m. ET on NBCSN, NBC Sports App and NBC Sports.com).
