2021 Indianapolis 500 Last Row and Fast Nine Shootout Live Qualifying Updates

Welcome to the second day of Indianapolis 500 qualifying!

Today we have the Last Row Shootout and the Fast Nine Shootout.

The Last Row Shootout is between Sage Karam, Will Power, Simona De Silvestro, Charlie Kimball and RC Enerson. All five will fight for three spots. Each car has one guaranteed attempt and any subsequent attempts wipe out past times. Unlike yesterday, a driver can sit on their times and the times are not deleted when they are bumped.

This session lasts for 75 minutes.

Afterward is the Fast Nine Shootout, where the fastest nine cars from yesterday go out in order from slowest to fastest to set the first three rows of the grid. Each car has one attempt.

Like yesterday, the most recent attempts will be further up the sheet, so scroll up from the bottom to go in chronological order.

Yesterday, Alex Palou crashed in Indianapolis 500 pole day qualifying. Here’s a recap of that incident:

Don’t get why some of the speeds behind the front rows are higher, average wise, than those on the front rows. Ofc, I care nothing for Indycars.
