IndyCar drivers Scott Dixon, Dario Franchitti robbed at Indy Taco Bell

Indy 500 Racer Robbed at Taco Bell Drive-Thru

The team achieved their best result of the season at the most recent Grand Prix in Spain as Alonso came home 12th, a miserable indictment of their form over the first five races.

Third-round leader James Hahn was a stroke back.

Rookie Fernando Alonso will start fifth in his first oval race Sunday. No one outside of that final group made a real charge to contend with the final trio.

This happened the day that Dixon took pole position during Indianapolis 500 qualifying.

The New Zealander finished with a qualifying speed of 232.164 miles per hour, the best since Arie Luyendyk's track record of 236.986 in 1996. Dixon's first lap of 232.595 also was the fastest since Luyendyk's record lap of 237.498 in 1996. He qualified third at 231.487 miles per hour to secure a career-best start in a Verizon IndyCar Series race - his previous best was fifth earlier this season at Long Beach - and the first front-row start of his Indy auto career.

"You trim out here to the max, man, and if you want to get rewards here you have to go for it", Dixon declared.

"Once you secure the top nine it doesn't make a huge difference to the race or total result but the auto felt great".

Will Power is the top qualifier for Penske in 9th.

Dixon won after claiming his first Indy pole in 2008.

Sam Allardyce Expecting More From Wilfried Zaha
And before a parliamentary select committee Robert Sullivan from the FA said I hadn't been in breach of any FA rules. No doubt about that. "I haven't spoken to Roy".

And when the fans saw the times posted on each lap, the roar increased.

IndyCar competitors are subject to having their electric power boost cut if it goes above a certain threshold - which hit Alonso on his run.

Takuma Sato, of Japan, drives into turn one during a practice session for the Indianapolis 500 IndyCar auto race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Sunday, May 21, 2017 in Indianapolis.

Organizers have started the "active phase" of laying a new pitch and it should be finished by June 2, Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko told Russian agency R-Sport.

That left Carpenter as the last chance to knock Dixon off the pole - and he already seemed to know that probably wasn't going to happen.

"It's an emotional place", admitted Dixon.

Dixon's teammate Tony Kanaan will start seventh, the inside of Row 3.

One day after four-time Champ Car champion Sebastien Bourdais had surgery to fix multiple fractures in his pelvis, team owner Dale Coyne named James Davison the replacement. Davison, of Australia, replaces French driver Sebastien Bourdais, who had successful surgery to fix his pelvis Saturday night.

Bourdais crashed Saturday during Indianapolis 500 qualifying, leaving him with multiple fractures in his pelvis and a fractured right hip. He was then evaluated by a doctor who diagnosed him with a concussion. Honda took six spots in the Fast Nine.
