Indy 500 live results: Updates and highlights from Indianapolis Motor Speedway

We’ll be keeping you up to the minute on the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday!

1:02 p.m.: The pit lane opens and just about everybody comes in for the stop. Carpenter BARELY escapes the pit lane with the lead, just ahead of Kanaan. He had a slower stop than those behind him, but got out of the last box just in time. Carpenter rejoins in the lead, then Kanaan, Newgarden, Pagenaud, Castroneves, Power, Pigot, Bourdais, Dixon and Andretti.

12:58 p.m.: On Lap 40, the top seven cars are all Chevrolets, then there’s four Hondas. Speeds are starting to improve as the track gets some rubber on it — there was rain on Saturday evening, contributing to the slower speeds at the start here. Rossi is up nine spots to 23rd.

We’ve got our first yellows of the race on Lap 47. James Davison has crashed, and Tukuma Sato, the defending champion, with him. Upon replay, Davison was going very slowly, and Sato comes up fast and hits him from behind. Davison should have been off the line at that point. Bad, bad luck for Sato.

12:50 p.m.: After the first round of pit stops, Carpenter is back in the lead, and Kanaan has jumped several drivers and is now in second! So after the stops it’s Carpenter, Kanaan, Newgarden, Pagenaud, Castroneves, Power, Pigot, Bourdais, Dixon and Andretti for the top 10. The cars are definitely right on the edge with this near-record levels of heat.

12:47 p.m.: Carpenter gets 2.5 seconds clear of Pagenaud in second by Lap 24, and Power is about that far back of Pagenaud. Kanaan, the biggest jumper thus far, is about a second back of Bourdais. Patrick is the first one to pit, on Lap 31. Newgarden makes it past Pagenaud, but a lap later, the leaders are coming in for their pit stops. Carpenter, Pagenaud, Castroneves, Kimball, Newgarden all stop. Spencer Pigot is the race leader, at least for now. Power, Bourdais, Newgarden, Dixon, Andretti all in on Lap 33 pit stops. Carpenter led the first 30 laps before his stop. The heat has to be getting to these tires!

12:36 p.m.: Carpenter’s lead is about a second, and Pagenaud hasn’t tried to push him yet, though it’s early. It’s surprising he didn’t try to get in close and feel things out. Patrick and other drivers are complaining of understeer early on here. Rahal has picked up seven spots, and is running in 23rd as of Lap 18. The heat has the pack running about a second slower than they were running on Carb Day, and large gaps are starting to form. This may be a quieter race after all.

12:30 p.m.: Pagenaud makes it past Power after a lap. Kimball passes the defending champion, Sato, for 16th, and a lap later moves past Wickens. Newgarden and Bourdais have held position, as has Carpenter in first after 10 laps.

12:24 p.m.: Pace laps underway, and what is hopefully a good one is about to get started! Thor is here to wave the green flag, and we’re away! Carpenter is smooth out of the start, no incidents. Kanaan moves up a couple spots. Patrick falls back to 12th after the first lap, Kanaan is all the way up to sixth!

12:10 p.m.: We’ve just had the National Anthem, and drivers will soon start their engines. It’s awfully hot in Indy, and that will be one of the bigger storylines to track throughout the race: how will it affect the leaders?

The Indianapolis 500 is here, and it should be an exciting one. Ed Carpenter has pole position for the 102nd running of the storied race, which is considered by most to be among the top three most prestigious races in all of motorsports alongside the Formula One Monaco Grand Prix and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

We’re going to have live coverage of the Indy 500, which is set to begin at approximately 12:20 p.m. ET and will be broadcast by ABC. Online streaming of the race can be had via WatchESPN or the ESPN App, or any subscription service that carries ABC.

Carpenter, 37, has never won the Indy 500 despite having won pole multiple times. Helio Castroneves, who will start eighth, is the only active driver with three Indy 500 victories, and he’ll do his best to earn his fourth on Sunday. If he can do it, he’ll join elite company, as only three others have done that in the past.

Sunday’s race also marks the final race of Danica Patrick’s full-time racing career. She announced her plans to retire from full-time racing well in advance of the event, and managed to qualify for ninth on the grid.

We’ll be blogging the entire race and providing highlights as well, so keep an eye here and refresh the page often. The most current update will live at the top of the article.
