Round 6: The 106th running of the Indianapolis 500. May 17 - 29, 2022.

Round 6: The 106th running of the Indianapolis 500. May 17 - 29, 2022.

With the first practice session and the Rookie Orientation Program starting today, it's time to start the thread for the 106th running of the Indianapolis 500. Exciting times.

After the disruptions to the 104th running of the Indy 500 by the Covid pandemic, last year's 105th running was back where it belonged on the calendar, the Memorial Day weekend and this year's race is no exception. However, at one point there were some doubts as to whether there might be a field of 33 cars this year, something that has been a feature of the Indy 500 since 1934, except for extenuating circumstances when the field expanded to 35 starters in 1979 and 1997. The 33rd entry spot was eventually filled, as Cusick Motorsports in partnership with DragonSpeed, announced they were entering the race with Stefan Wilson driving.

This year there will be eight former winners, three of whom are multiple winners and seven Rookie drivers.

-

Qualifications :
Qualifying will use the same two-day format that was first used in 2019.
For an entry list of 33 or more cars, those cars outside of the top 30 are considered not to have qualified, as only positions 1 - 30 will be locked in on Day 1.

Day 1.
Saturday 21,
12:00 p.m. to 5:50 p.m. All cars entered will be guaranteed at least one attempt. Additional attempts are allowed, time/weather permitting.

Cars ranking 1–12 will advance to Second Round Qualifying.
Cars ranking 13–30 will be locked-in to those starting positions, and will not re-qualify.
Cars ranking 31–33 will be entered into the Last Chance Qualifying.

Day 2.
Sunday 22.
2 p.m. Last Chance Qualifying session will be held. Entries ranked 31st and lower on Saturday will have at least one attempt to qualify. Qualifying speeds from Saturday will be erased. Additional attempts will be allowed, time/weather permitting, until 3 p.m. Starting positions 31–32–33 will be filled.

4 p.m., the second round of qualifying will be held. Cars that are ranked 1st - 12th on Saturday will have one guaranteed attempt. Qualifying speeds from Saturday will be erased. Cars will go out in reverse order, 12th - 1st. The top six cars will advance to the final round. The cars ranking 7th through 12th will be locked-in to those starting positions.

5:10 p.m., the final round of qualifying will be held. Cars that are ranked 1st through 6th during the second round will have one guaranteed attempt. Qualifying speeds from the Top 12 session will be erased. Cars will go out in reverse order, 6th - 1st. The top six starting positions will be set, including pole position.

History
Indianapolis Motor Speedway is one of the world's oldest, purpose-built tracks that is still in use. In 1905 Indiana businessman Carl G. Fisher, envisioned building a circuit after watching some of the world's earliest car races in France. He felt Europe had the upper hand in car design and thought one reason was the lack of permanent testing facilities for American car manufacturers. After another visit to Europe and seeing the banked oval at Brooklands, England, he decided to build his own track.

Fisher convinced local businessmen James A. Allison, Arthur Newby and Frank W. Wheeler to join him in purchasing Pressley Farm, five miles outside of Indianapolis and totalling 328 acres for about $72,000. On March 20, 1909, The Indianapolis Motor Speedway company was incorporated and construction began that month.

The track surface consisted of packed soil covered by two inches of gravel, two inches of limestone covered with a solution of tar and oil, or taroid, one–two inches of crushed stone chips, also drenched with taroid and topped with crushed stones.

The first motorsport event was a series of motorcycle races planned over two days, under the sanction of the Federation of American Motorcyclists (FAM), starting on August 14, 1909. Concerns about the track surface stopped the event part way through day one. Five days later 15 teams arrived for the first car event, held over three days. This was not without incident. On day one Wilfred Bourque suffered a rear-axle failure, resulting in his car flipping end over end on the main straight, before crashing into a fence post, killing him and his mechanic Harry Halcomb. On day three the right front tire blew on Charlie Merz's car, knocking down five fence posts and dozens of spectators, killing two as well as his mechanic Claude Kellum. Ten laps later, after another accident, the race was cancelled.

The AAA, American Automobile Association, announced it would boycott further events unless the surface was changed. A concrete surface was considered but the track owners decided to pave the entire facility with bricks, after tests proved their durability. Five Indiana manufacturers supplied 3.2 million, 10-pound bricks. Each was hand laid on a 2 inch bed of sand, then leveled and the gaps filled with mortar. A concrete wall 33 inches tall was also constructed in front of the main grandstand and around all four corners to protect spectators. The final brick was made of gold and laid in a special ceremony by Governor Thomas R. Marshall.

In December 1909, the track reopened for testing, with speeds of up to 112 mph being reported. Racing returned the next year, with a series of short races held over the three main holiday weekends: Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day.

The following year, 1911, racing was just confined to Memorial Day and the very first 500 mile race was held on May 30. It was won by a former racer and Marmon engineer Ray Harroun, who came out of retirement for just one race, driving the legendary Marmon-Wasp. Since then, the event has usually been held on the Sunday before Memorial Day, though there have been exceptions, due to World Wars I and II, the weather intervening and more recently the Covid-19 pandemic.

Some 500 Records and Trivia:

1911: Ray Harroun was the first winner of the 500, driving a Marmon-Wasp.

1936: Louis Meyer was the first driver to win three times, 1928, 1933, 1936. It was after his third win that the Lois Meyer asked for a glass of buttermilk, something his mother had encouraged him to drink on hot days, hence the tradition of the bottle of milk.

Excellent post #1 as ever, bjs! Thx for putting it up in time as it reminded me to watch the last practice session yesterday. Nothing quite like The Speedway, even if 'just practice'!

When it comes to the race, it's my son's birthday weekend and big plans have been launched. With the return of the 'greatest day in motorsport' in 2022, I might miss it all

Yep, not liking the comments from the drivers about it being difficult to overtake. Looking forward to today though, boost turned up, huge gusts, could see big speeds.

In qualifying trim the cars are not easy to drive, everyone having problems. They should make them race like this.

So far Pato O'Ward is the only driver to complete 4 laps in a row. Castroneves is attempting the same.

mstets should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Apparently there is a chance of rain tomorrow, so schedule has been moved a bit earlier. McLaren got the best luck in the draw with Pato going first and Felix going 4th, JPM 9th. Rinus goes out 2nd, Grosjean fifth, Johnson sixth, Sato tenth, Marco eleventh, TK thirteenth, Malukas fourteenth.


Am I correct in thinking that if the day gets rained out before all 33 cars get a chance to qualify that the whole day's results are scrapped?

Am I correct in thinking that if the day gets rained out before all 33 cars get a chance to qualify that the whole day's results are scrapped?


The revised schedule:

  • 8:30-9 a.m. – Practice Group 1
  • 9-9:30 a.m. – Practice Group 2
  • 11 a.m. – PPG Presents Armed Forces Qualifying begins
Yes. If it were to rain and stop qualifying runs before all cars have been given at least one run, and if the session can't be restarted before the end of the day, all Saturday's results would then be scratched and the process would start again on Sunday.

Sato was penalised on his first run for impeding a competitor, goes out again, hits the wall square on and makes in through to the Fast 12!

Mid session it seems, some retired dude in 6th. Guess we can't support the online whinging about his coverage now, DAMN. Prob is as usual Peacock for me SUCKS, not sure why their quality sucks when everything else I stream is fine

I'm watching it on IndyCar Live!, and I presume it has the NBC/Peacock commentary. However I'm listening to the IndyCar radio commentary.


The rain has come.

mstets should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Karam really unlucky to have the rain come just after they withdrew his original time. Great job by Sato to get back in the fast 12 group. Here is the order at the time the rain started.

Post rain laps ain't good, Penske's got 2 withdrawn in Lane 1 and McLaughlin got the shaft 15th-25th by re-running.

Wonder what that does for JNew?? Withdrawn time in Lane 1 but Indy took his attempt away with the next round of rain and lightning. They'll have to return his time you would think BUT they signed off to skip ahead in Lane 1. No penalty for tossing your time as you'll make the field regardless

Oh yeah, that was a close strike there.
