Scott McLaughlin, driving for Penske, etched his name in Indy 500 history during qualifying. He delivered the fastest-ever four-lap pole run at an average pace of 234.220 mph. McLaughlin’s blistering performance secured him the top spot on the starting grid, alongside fellow Penske teammates Will Power and Josef Newgarden.

However, the 108th edition of the Indianapolis 500 promises to be an exhilarating race, and Arrow McLaren has already made its mark. With a stellar team effort, they secured two cars in the Fast Six and all four cars in the top 15 on the starting grid.

While Penske dominated the front row, Arrow McLaren also made its presence felt. Alexander Rossi, driving for McLaren, recorded a 234 mph lap and will start from the fourth position. Additionally, Kyle Larson, another NASCAR star, qualified for the pole shootout on his first attempt and will start fifth. Larson aims to achieve “The Double” by winning both the Indy 500 and NASCAR’s Coca-Cola 600 on the same day.

The 2024 Indianapolis 500 promises to be an exciting race, and all eyes are on Kyle Larson. The versatile driver has made a name for himself in NASCAR, but now he’s set to compete in the prestigious Indy 500. However, what happens if Larson is unable to race? Who will take the wheel for McLaren?

If Kyle Larson misses the Indy 500, Tony Kanaan will be the driver for Arrow McLaren. Kanaan, a seasoned veteran in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, has a remarkable track record and is set to make his final appearance at the iconic Indianapolis 500.

Kyle Larson’s move from NASCAR to IndyCar has generated significant buzz. The deal was brokered by Jeff Gordon, the winningest driver on Indy’s 2.5-mile oval, and McLaren Racing boss Zak Brown. Hendrick Motorsports and Larson’s NASCAR sponsor are also involved in this collaboration.
