INDIANAPOLIS (May 18, 2014) – Sunday marks Old National Armed Forces Pole Day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway–and the weather should be ideal.

Ed Carpenter topped the speed charts in qualifying Saturday, posting a four-lap average of 230.661 mph. He and the eight other drivers who finished in the top nine will compete in a shootout, where they will try to win the pole.

Here are the nine drivers in Sunday’s shootout:

There were 71 qualifying attempts Saturday, an Indianapolis 500 record, according to IMS. No drivers will be bumped out of the field, as there are 33 cars in the race.
