Crown Royal Presents The Samuel Deeds 400 at The Brickyard
Qualifying is over at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Juan Pablo Montoya finished atop the pylon with a fast lap of 182.278 mph. Two-time defending Indy winner Jimmie Johnson will start alongside Montoya on Sunday.
With only a handful of drivers already completing their laps, speeds are already higher than practice yesterday. Who will win pole? Stay logged on to find out!
Why is qualifying so important here at Indianapolis Motor Speedway? In 16 previous races at the famed 2.5-mile venue, the winner has started from pole twice (Kevin Harvick in 2003, Jimmie Johnson in '08) and nine times the winner has started inside the top 10. In fact, no driver has won after starting worst than 27th.
Plenty of fast cars will go out early in qualifying, so we'll get a good sample of speeds right out of the box.
After two Sprint Cup practices Friday, you have to believe the favorite for pole is Juan Pablo Montoya, who led both sessions. Fellow Earnhardt Ganassi Racing teammate Jamie McMurray is also a pole threat after finishing second-quick in Friday's second practice - as will Jimmie Johnson, winner of three of the last four races at the Brickyard.
The action is set to kick off shortly after 10:10 a.m. ET on Saturday, July 24.
