The only full-time owner-driver in the IndyCar Series took advantage of a cooling early evening track for a four-lap average of 230.468 miles per hour on the first day of Indianapolis 500 qualifying, Takuma Sato was second at 230.382, and Scott Dixon, the 2008 Indy victor, third at 230.333. But it's okay! We're here to help you figure it all out, and it's not as hard to follow from home as it may appear.

There were long delays at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, first to rain and then after a dramatic crash involving Sebastian Bourdais.

Alonso will be the third driver to go out in the Fast Nine leg of qualifying, and will be aiming to become the first European pole-sitter for the Indy 500 since 1999.

"I think my timing on the qualifying was not the best", he said. Hildebrand wound up fourth at 230.205. It's a happy surprise - the whole week - but we did nothing, so we need to start finding some more limits from Sunday onwards. "It's fantastic around this place". Roger Penske's drivers have won all five poles this season with Power taking three and Helio Castroneves taking two.

Van Zyl did not return from the hunt, and a set of footprints were found leading to an abandoned rucksack, the BBC report noted. Botha was a pioneer of Monteira hunting, in which packs of dogs are deployed to chase deer and boar towards hunters.

For a few brief moments Sunday, Fernando Alonso was on top of the IndyCar world.

"The whole week, the vehicle had pretty good balance but for some reason, we're not that fast", said Castroneves, a three-time 500 victor and a four-time Indy pole victor.

Four-time Indy pole victor Castroneves, two-time race victor Juan Pablo Montoya and defending series champ Simon Pagenaud all missed out on the shootout. "We trimmed out as much as we could".

But two attempts later, Rossi knocked Alonso out of the top spot and two attempts after that, Dixon took the lead for good.

Dixon's teammate, Tony Kanaan, will start seventh after going 230.828.

He said he was feeling more comfortable in the cockpit of an IndyCar and said participation in the race by European Formula One drivers like himself and Rossi was good for motorsports. Cars stay in line until qualifying with no further changes, too, else a team must give up their one guaranteed attempt at qualifying today.

"I know him from F1 time, and also yesterday we were talking in the casino, in the event, all together about the cars, about how he feels here, how fast he was on Friday", Alonso said. But the auto felt good. "We had an over-boost problem (with the turbocharger) in the final corner, so the engine was like hitting the brakes and I lost a bit".
