2015 Indy Pole Position

2015 Indy Pole Position
The teams have been practicing hard at Indy where the fastest this year is #9 Scott Dixon @ 226.760 MPH man that's rollin!  What's it take to get that extra 240\100th of an MPH faster to hit 227, a breeze?  The slowest qualifying if you can call it that, is #19 James Davidson @ 223.747 MPH.  During morning warm up #20 Ed Carpenter gets loss in turn 2 resulting in an incredible impact into the wall.

Ed Carpenter into turn 2
Two hours later the team has Superman Ed back out on the track and clocked Carpenter @ 224.883 MPH 12th on the pole, incredible will have to watch Ed!  Also, Marco Andretti turning 225.189 MPH for 8th pole position, the Andrettis' are in contention once again, Marco is flying out there!

The Indycar channel on YouTube has literally hours of practice taped, also at the Indycar website, starting line up for the 99th running looks really sharp, nice work.  Enjoy the clip, the teams are flying at Indy!
