Simon Pagenaud wins pole for 103rd Indy 500
  by Tim Wohlford
In a high-drama day, delayed by rain, Penske Chevy driver Simon Pagenaud put up 3 laps over 230 mph and averaged 229.992 mph over 4-laps to win the pole for the 103rd Indy 500 - the 18th Indy 500 pole for Team Penske. The Ed Carpenter Chevy team took the other two front row spots with Ed Carpenter 2nd quick and Ed Jones putting up the 3rd best 4-lap average. But perhaps the biggest shock of the day was F1 team McLaren and 2-time F1 champion Fernando Alonso failing to make the race - just too slow by 13/1000th of a second over the 10 mile run.
Sage, Hinch and Kyle in... and Alonso is OUT!
  by Tim Wohlford
So much for the snotty F1 fans thinking their series is superior. McLaren and Fernando Alonso were bumped out of the Indy 500 by the minnow IndyCar team Juncos and their young American Kyle Kaiser. Sage Karam, James Hinchcliffe and Kyle Kaiser are all in the 2019 Indy 500.  Fernando Alonso, Pato O'Ward and Max Chilton are out of the race.  Team officials emphatically rule out a ride-buy for Fernando, so, he's out...
F1 Greats Don't Always Have Fun at Indy
  by Tim Wohlford
Should Fernando Alonso not make the Indy 500 this year -- and the odds are not in his favor -- then he will join a long line of F1 greats (and also-rans) who came to Indy just to have a miserable time.  From Ascari to Andretti, F1 success has often been allusive -- and sometimes the results have been catastrophic.  Consider the long list of woe encountered by just a few of the F1 drivers....

Indy 500 Quals Day 1: Pigot fastest, Alonso too slow
  by Tim Wohlford
Ed Carpenter Racing's Spencer Pigot turned the fastest qualifying speed on Day 1 in qualifying for the 103rd Indy 500 and he and 8 others earned a chance to run for pole on Sunday if the weatherman cooperates. Will Power, Simon Pagenaud, Josef Newgarden, Colton Herta, Ed Jones, Ed Carpenter, Alexander Rossi and Sebastien Bourdais locked in spots 1-9, but the order may change. Spots 10-30 were also locked in with Pippa Mann the slowest in 30th. Sunday will see 6 drivers, including Fernando Alonso go for the final 3 spots.

  Ed Jones again fastest w/o a tow
Conor Daly, this year driving for Andretti Autosport, turned the fastest lap on Fast Friday at 231.704 mph to top teammate Marco Andretti who sat at the top most of the day.  However, Daly only had the 22nd fastest no-tow time and Marco the 7th. The real top-dogs on Fast Friday, a day when the turbo boost gets turned up on all the engines, were Ed Jones, Ed Carpenter and Alexander Rossi who had the fastest no-tow speeds and go into qualifying as the early pole favorites.
