The Indianapolis 500’s qualifying format is headed for a change, with the battle for this year’s pole moved to Sunday, May 18, perhaps at the end of the day. Pole day has traditionally been on Saturday.
IndyCar Series officials had hoped to present final details to competitors this week at regularly scheduled meetings, but that won’t happen, a league spokesman said.
Michael Andretti, a former driver whose Andretti Autosport team unveiled its four-car driver lineup Monday, said he hasn’t worried too much about the change.
