Carpenter earns pole for upcoming Indy 500
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Ed Carpenter turned Pole Day into a family celebration on Saturday.

Carpenter produced a stunning finish to a day that was rife with suspense but lacked surprise. His four-lap average of 228.762 mph was quick enough to break up what appeared to be a Team Penske-Andretti Autosport lock on the front three rows in the nine-car shootout for the pole.
