Ed Carpenter emerged as the surprise winner in the battle for pole position for next weekend's Indianapolis 500.
IndyCar's only full-time owner/driver had ended the initial qualifying session with the fifth-fastest time, and strung together a sequence of four laps at 229.347mph, 228.976mph, 228.774mph and 227.955mph laps to finish up with an average of 228.762mph."I wasn't sure we'd be able to do a 229, and we did two of them, and that was the key in the shootout," said Carpenter, whose only other career pole was at Kentucky in 2010.
