2019 Indy 500 Fast Nine Shootout Preview
The Fast Nine Shootout will determine the top nine starting positions in the Indy 500, which will take place on May 26.
Spencer Pigot earned the top spot in the Fast Nine Shootout during qualifying on Saturday with an average speed of 230.83 mph over four laps.
“I feel great,” the 25-year-old said, according to the official IndyCar website. “Obviously, it’s great to be on top of the speed charts and also to have all three of our Ed Carpenter Racing cars in the Fast Nine (Shootout) for the second year in a row. Just a testament to all the work everyone does in the shop throughout the offseason and leading into this race.”
The eight racers to qualify for the Fast Nine Shootout behind Pigot, of Ed Carptenter Racing, are, in order: Will Power (Team Penske), Simon Pagenaud (Team Penske), Josef Newgarden (Team Penske), Colton Herta (Harding Steinbrenner Racing), Ed Jones (Ed Carpenter Racing, Scuderia Corsa), Ed Carpenter (Ed Carpenter Racing), Alexander Rossi (Andretti Autosport), and Sébastien Bourdais (Dale Coyne Racing with Vasser-Sullivan).
The next 21 fastest drivers punched their tickets to the big race.
The last of that group was Pippa Mann of Clauson-Marshall Racing, who edged Fernando Alonso of McLaren Racing 227.244 mph to 227.224 mph for her seventh career Indy 500 start.
Mann didn’t qualify for the race in 2018.
“We kind of miscalculated how much better the track conditions were going to get at the end of the day,” Mann said, per the IndyCar website. “By the time we realized how much better (conditions) were and how much quicker we’d have been able to run, there were too many cars in the (qualifying) line to pull our time to go. So I literally had to sit there sweating it out, and all that was going through my head was, ‘Not again, please not again, please, please not again!”
Six drivers will compete for the three final Indy 500 spots in the Last Row Shootout on Sunday: Alonso, James Hinchcliffe (Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports), Sage Karam (Dreyer & Reinbold Racing), Patricio O’Ward (Carlin Racing), Max Chilton (Carlin Racing), and Kyle Kaiser (Juncos Racing).
Hinchcliffe crashed on his first qualifying attempt.
“Luckily we’ve got a chance,” the 32-year-old Canadian said, according to The Associated Press. “With the amount of time we had to get this thing together, there are some little tricks of the trade where I think we can find some speed. It’s weird to think this isn’t actually the worst qualifying day we’ve had here.”
