2024 Indy 500 starting grid - Can Newgarden make it two in a row?

We're now just hours away from the 108th Indianapolis 500, which is set to get underway on Sunday, May 26.

History will be made once again at the iconic Speedway this weekend, as Pole-sitter Scott McLaughlin aims to become the first New Zealander to win the Indy 500 since Scott Dixon in 2008.

However, that all hinges upon the rain holding off, as storms are expected to hit the Indianapolis area throughout Sunday afternoon.

McLaughlin will start for Penske in the Indianapolis 500 from pole position. The Kiwi smashed the record for the average pole speed over four laps in last Sunday's qualifying.

He managed a remarkable average speed of 234.220 mph (376.940 kph).

Joining him on the front row this year are Will Power (second) and 2023 winner Josef Newgarden (third) who complete the Team Penske lockout.

Here then, is the rest of the starting grid for the 2024 Indy 500.
