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:
|START SPOT||ENTRY||DRIVER||ENTRANT POINTS|
|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).
