 2022 Indianapolis 500: Live updates, highlights, results for the 106th running of the Indy 500


Scott Dixon took the lead from pole position for Chip Ganassi Racing in the 106th run of the Indianapolis 500, and the 2008 winner has a lot of familiar company around him as Ganassi racing cars also start in second (Alex Palou), fifth (Marcus Ericsson), Tony Canaan (sixth) and Jimmie Johnson (12th).

In the past 105 events, only 21 times the driver leading the start has also been the first to finish, including Dixon in 2008, his only Indy 500 win. The last driver to make it was Simon Pagenaud in 2019.

Judging from Friday’s Carb Day session, the Ganassi cars will be the losers as it’s Canaan’s turn to lead the timing sheet at 227.114 mph. Ericsson and Dixon were second and fourth quickly with Dale Coyne Racing’s car of two-time winner Takuma Sato splitting them.

Rinus VeeKay, who started third, ran second when he released the first full-course caution. VeeKay’s Ed Carpenter Racing car was surprised by the gust of wind in the short chute between Turns 1 and 2, turned around and hit the wall hard, ending his day.

The weather on Sunday will look hot, with a high of 83 Fahrenheit, and there is no rain forecast at this time. Wind gusts of up to 17 mph can be an issue on short chutes between Turns 1-2 and 3-4.
