Scott Dixon will sit on the pole at the Indianapolis 500 next Sunday.
He averaged a speed of 231.685 mph to take the pole and will be joined by Colton Herra (231.655 average mph) and Rinus VeeKay (231.511 average mph) in the front row.
Sunday's triumph earned Dixon a $100,000 prize. He was understandably a happy man, especially after his final run got a touch hairy.
"Obviously you could see towards the end of that lap there it got pretty sketchy and we scrubbed a ton of speed," he said after the race.
"It doesn't matter what it is, we'll take that," he added after being told he earned the top spot by a minuscule 0.03 mph.
Here's how the full field shook out:
- Row 2: Ed Carpenter, Tony Kanaan and Alex Palou
- Row 3: Ryan Hunter-Reay, Helio Castroneves and Marcus Ericsson
- Row 4: Alexander Rossi, Ed Jones and Pato O'Ward
- Row 5: Pietro Fittipaldi, Felix Rosenqvist and Takuma Sato
- Row 6: James Hinchcliffe, Scott McLaughlin and Graham Rahal
- Row 7: Conor Daly, Jack Harvey and Josef Newgarden
- Row 8: JR Hildebrand, Santino Ferrucci and Juan Pablo Montoya
- Row 9: Marco Andretti, Simon Pagenaud and Sebastien Bourdais
- Row 10: Stefan Wilson, Max Chilton and Dalton Kellett
- Row 11: Sage Karam, Will Power and Simona De Silvestro
Notable racers to miss the cut included Charlie Kimball and RC Enerson.
History was also made Sunday, as De Silvestro and Paretta Autosport owner Beth Paretta became the first female driver-owner pairing to qualify for the race.
"I feel like we've climbed a mountain together," Paretta said of the achievement. "Hats off to all of these women, also all these men from Team Penske who have been coaching our women on this team and really just working, digging in. ... I couldn't be happier, and we can't wait till next week."
The 105th running of the Indianapolis 500 will take place next Sunday at 11 a.m. ET on NBC.
