It's another packed episode of The Day At Indy for Saturday, May 18, as a wild day of qualifying for the Indy 500, led by our opening guest Spencer Pigot from Ed Carpenter Racing, saw McLaren Racing and Fernando Alonso miss out on securing a spot in the field for the Spaniard while Tim Clauson's Clauson-Marshall Racing USAC dirt racing program earned the 30th and final position available on Saturday.
Clauson is joined by Team Penske's Josef Newgarden who, like Pigot, earned the right to vie for pole position on Sunday after capturing a spot in the Fast 9.
We close with Harding Steinbrenner Racing's Colton Herta, who posted the fifth-fastest speed and will also take a shot at pole, and gives us some amazing insights on his amazing performance on Saturday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
