Unfortunately, Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires qualifying will not occur due to an extended period of lightning.

The race line-up will be set via entrant points, which (if our math is correct) are as follows:

1 No. 26 – HMD Motorsports w/Dale Coyne Racing Linus Lundqvist 383
2 No. 27 – Andretti Autosport Hunter McElrea 306
3 No. 2 – Andretti Autosport Sting Ray Robb 293
4 No. 83 – Andretti Autosport Matthew Brabham 289
5 No. 28 – Andretti Autosport Christian Rasmussen 272
6 No. 24 – Global Racing Group w/HMD Benjamin Pedersen 268
7 No. 68 – HMD Motorsports w/Dale Coyne Racing Danial Frost 258
8 No. 51 – Abel Motorsports Jacob Abel 213
9 No. 99 – Force Indy Ernie Francis, Jr. 198
10 No. 7 – HMD Motorsports w/Dale Coyne Racing Christian Bogle 192
11 No. 11 – HMD Motorsports w/Dale Coyne Racing James Roe, Jr. 158
12 No. 21 – HMD Motorsports w/Dale Coyne Racing Kyffin Simpson 19

The cancellation is unfortunate for Pedersen, who was much quicker than his competitors in both practice sessions.

It’s also unfortunate for the drivers chasing Lundqvist, who was only fourth quick during the two practice sessions.

The 35-lap Indy Lights Music City Grand Prix is scheduled for 12:10 pm (Central).
