Scott Dixon (Chip Ganassi Honda) Fastest in Indianapolis 500 first-round qualifying: "
Huge shout-out to Honda, kudos to them for getting seven of the [Fast Nine] spots, as this series is just so competitive. The longer I'm involved in this sport, the more I appreciate the accomplishments we achieve as a team, as I realize just how hard they are.


To have four Chip Ganassi Racing cars in the top nine, every team would dream of that. It's hard work, and it's never any one person singularly responsible, we have a great team and everyone works super- hard to make it all work."




Colton Herta (Andretti Autosport Honda) Starting from the middle of the front row, second, in his second Indianapolis 500: "
I'm so happy just to have the chance to [make the fast nine and] run for the pole today. I just can't wait for next Sunday. I know we have a great race car, we just lacked that first and second lap [qualifying] speed that Scott [Dixon] had today. But I'm happy with how today went.



I'm super happy for Gainbridge, the whole Andretti Autosport team, and proud to be powered by Honda. You saw how many cars were powered by Honda in the Fast Nine [seven], it's incredible."




Tony Kanaan (Chip Ganassi Racing) Starting from the middle of the second row, fifth, in his 20th Indianapolis 500:
"The conditions today were pretty decent. I got a question [from his team] right before my run asking if I wanted to trim out more and I decided not to, and I regret it.


But it was a great run for us, I was pretty comfortable. But I'm happy for Scott [Dixon]. We have such a great atmosphere on this team. Of course, I wanted it to be me [on the pole], but I'm really happy for Scott and the Ganassi team."






Fast Facts



    This is Honda's 14th pole in 21 races at the Indianapolis 500, and 7th pole with multi- manufacturer competition.



    This is Scott Dixon's fourth Indianapolis pole in 19 Indianapolis 500s, with his previous pole runs coming in 2008 (when he also won the race), 2015 and 2017. Dixon also led the way in Saturday's first-round qualifying. It is the sixth Indianapolis 500 pole for Chip Ganassi Racing.


    Following the conclusion of qualifying, INDYCAR held a two-hour practice session for the full, 33-car starting field. Once again, Honda drivers and teams led the way, claiming eight of the top-10 positions on the speed chart, led by Chip Ganassi Racing's Alex Palou at 225.649 mph.



    Other drivers in the top 10 of the Sunday afternoon practice included Marcus Ericsson, Tony Kanaan, pole qualifier Scott Dixon, defending race winner Takuma Sato, Graham Rahal, Stefan Wilson and Marco Andretti.


    Honda has won more Indianapolis 500 races than any major automaker: 13 victories from 20 races – a win ratio of 65% – since the company entered the INDYCAR competition in 1994. Honda has had more race starts at the Indianapolis 500 than any other auto manufacturer: 388 starts. Honda drivers also have completed more race laps at the Indianapolis 500 than any other carmaker: 67,789 laps.


    Honda and Honda Performance Development extends its deepest sympathies to the family, friends and many fans of Andre Ribeiro, who passed away this weekend in Sao Paulo, Brazil, age 55, following a battle with cancer. On August 20, 1995, Ribeiro recorded Honda's first Indy car victory, winning from the pole in his Tasman Motorsports Reynard Honda at New Hampshire International Speedway.
