2023 Indianapolis 500 Saturday Qualifying Live Report

Welcome! This will serve as a live update hub for Saturday (May 20) qualifying for the 107th Indianapolis 500.

All 34 cars drew their spot in the qualifying order Friday evening and will go out one at a time for their four-lap qualifying run.

The updates will come as cars complete their runs with the most recent runs at the top of the listing.

The Procedure:

Each car will complete a four lap qualifying run with their average speed across all four laps serving as their qualifying speed. The fastest 12 qualifiers will re-qualify Sunday. then the top 6 qualifiers will end the weekend competing in the Fast 6 Shootout for the pole. Positions 13-30 will be locked into their current positions on Saturday, 1-12 and 31-33 on Sunday. Each entry is guaranteed one attempt to qualify and multiple attempts can be made Saturday.

The bottom four on the speed chart on Saturday will participate in a special qualifying session on Sunday, which will determine the 11th and final row of the race. It will also determine the lone car and driver that will not qualify for the race.

The Lanes:

After a car has completed an attempt, they may make a second attempt at qualifying. However, there is a choice that all teams are allowed to make. Going into the Normal Lane means that a team may make an attempt without withdrawing their qualifying speed. If their new attempt is faster, that will be their new speed. If it is slower, nothing happens. However, if a team wants to get on track immediately, they can go into the Fast Lane and bypass the Normal Lane.

That decision comes with a price. A car that leaves this lane for a qualifying run must withdraw their previous speed. If their run is slower, the gamble will not have paid off.

Once again, scroll down for the earlier qualifying attempts. The grid will be updated every half-hour. Scroll to the bottom if you want to read this in chronological order. All timestamps are listed in local (EST) time of the track.
