Scott Dixon, racing for the Target Chip Ganassi IRL team, is your pole sitter for the upcoming Indy 500. Scott took the front spot with a 4-lap average of 226.366 MPH, about 0.5 MPH faster than last year's pole sitter. Slotting in behind Dixon is his teammate, Dan Wheldon, just a fraction slower at 226.110 MPH.
The series formerly known as the IRL held its first-ever race in the rain on Sunday, in an eventful (and definitely TiVo-worthy) race at the famous Watkins Glen road course.
