INDIANAPOLIS — The soap opera surrounding McLaren’s failed bid to qualify Fernando Alonso for the Indianapolis 500 is over. The spotlight is there for the taking. The McLaren debacle dominated the first week at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and dwarfed every other team and driver trying to make Sunday’s race, including plenty of contenders ready to star in “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.” Team Penske, Ed Carpenter Racing and engine-maker Chevrolet have shown the most consistency, while Honda and its flagship Andretti Autosport and Chip Ganassi Racing teams have work to do before the 500. Penske is on the pole for an 18th time with Simon Pagenaud, and Chevrolet earned the top four starting

spots in qualifying as the ECR trio of team owner Ed Carpenter, Spencer Pigot and Ed Jones took spots two through four. Only 1.8040 seconds separated Pagenaud from Kyle Kaiser, the final qualifier, to set the closest field in Indy 500 history. “I think all the cars are so close these days,” Pagenaud said. “(You) can see that all the teams are raising the game, all the drivers are raising their game. It’s honestly tremendous to be in this era of the sport because you get better and better every weekend and it never stops.” The fight to make the race was dramatic up and down pit lane. The Ganassi cars, with five-time series champion Scott Dixon and rookie Felix Rosenqvist,have been nothing special so far, and Rosenqvist needed a total rebuild of his confidence following a crash three days before qualifying. Rosenqvist was coached by three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti, who shadowed the Swedish driver and got him back up to speed and into the race.

“We all tried to keep him calm,” Franchitti said. “He had that look on the third (qualifying) run of, ‘I really don’t want to do this.’” Rosenqvist qualified the car 29th, narrowly avoiding Sunday’s stressful “Last Row Shootout” that eliminated Alonso. Of all the drivers who crashed during last week’s practice and went to backups, Rosenqvist was the only one to make it into the race on the first day of qualifying. “I feel probably as calm as I’ve been after that crash I had,” Rosenqvist said.“And I also had a feeling we could have gone much quicker, as well.” Sage Karam had similar struggles even as he attempted to qualify for his sixth Indy 500. The American didn’t like his car and clearly was spooked; teammate JR Hildebrand had to shake down the car for Karam and assure him it had no gremlins. Karam rebounded Sunday and was the fastest qualifier among the six vying for the final three spots in the race. He edged James Hinchcliffe, who didn’t make

the race last year and crashed in Saturday qualifying to put him in a desperate hole Sunday, while Kaiser of tiny Juncos Racing snagged the final spot in the field and sent home Alonso and McLaren. “The pressure, yeah, I mean it’s insane,” Karam said. “I never want to go through this again.” Kaiser crashed Friday, a day before qualifying, and team owner Ricardo Juncos had every employee work through the night to prepare a car. The team lost both its primary sponsors right before opening day, practiced all week in a plain white car and Kaiser turned four flawless laps to earn his second Indy 500 start. “We have a good momentum and a lot of companies started calling us, a lot of people,” Juncos said. “You won’t see a white car now this weekend because we already have something on the table.” The drivers aren’t back on the track until Friday’s “Carb Day” and it will be a final chance for Andretti Autosport to see what they’ve got for the race.

KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. — NFL owners meeting today will consider a proposal to refine the new rule that allows challenges involving pass interference, and may also announce locations to host upcoming drafts. Owners voted in March to allow interference calls or non-calls to be challenged by coaches and reviewed via replay as a one-year experiment. The tweak proposed this week would take the decision to review pass interference in the final two minutes of each half out of the hands of the officials. Reviews in the final two minutes would require a coach’s challenge, too. “The concern is how many stoppages will we end up with in the last two minutes,” Atlanta Falcons president and CEO Rich McKay said Tuesday. “One thing we do not want to do is be a game that has multiple stops in the last two minutes.” Under the rule adopted in March, in the final two minutes only officials in the booth can stop the game for reviews involving pass interference, as is the case with other reviewable plays. Owners are expected to vote on whether to let the NFL competition committee decide on changing the rule after it discusses the subject with the league’s coaches. McKay, a member of the committee, said the group has conference calls with coaches scheduled for early June. Owners will also consider a proposal to exempt Hail Mary passes so they’re not reviewable. That would require the league coming up with the definition of a Hail Mary. “I actually don’t think it’s that hard,” McKay said. “It’s going to be from what yard line was it thrown, were there multiple receivers, how much time is left on the clock. But you want to get input from the coaches — what definition are you comfortable with?”
