That guy you’ve seen on TikTok talking about cars going right and sometimes left.

Day one of Indy 500 qualifying was absolutely thrilling. The NASCAR world had its eyes on Kyle Larson, especially after he had an early engine issue and there was a buzzer-beater qualifying lap to cap off the day. Brake Hard is here to let you know everything that happened on day one of qualifying. 

  • Kyle Larson started off his qualifying with a super fast two laps, but a power failure on the third, he was still able to make it into the Fast 12 with a P6 qualifying effort. Where do you think he will finish in the race?
  • Multiple Chevys, including Kyle Larson, experienced power failures during qualifying. Is this something to worry about for the race?
  • Early in qualifying Rinus Veekay hit the turn 3 wall and limped away from his destroyed car, a few hours later with a fully repaired car he put together a 4-lap average speed that got him into P11 and into the Fast 12 with only seven seconds remaining in qualifying. Is there a way for NASCAR to implement this kind of drama into their race weekend? 

Where do you think Kyle Larson will finish in the race? Who do you think will win in the 500? Let Brake Hard know all of your thoughts and questions in the comment section.
