Dixon tops qualifying order for Indianapolis 500

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Scott Dixon turned the quickest lap on Fast Friday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in advance of Saturday and Sunday’s qualifying for the Indianapolis 500.

Marcus Ericsson posted the best four-lap average, and the Honda-powered cars claimed seven of the top 10 positions as the Indianapolis 500 gears up for qualifying weekend.

Dixon took the day’s top honors with a speed of 233.302 mph. But with Indy’s unique format, Ericsson’s speed of 231.949 may provide a better preview for the first day of qualifying.

Colton Herta had the second-best four-lap average at 231.726.

Pato O’Ward had the best Chevrolet at 231.522.

Practice on Saturday will run from 9:30-10:30 a.m. in two groups. Qualifying will be from noon-5:50 p.m. Saturday.
