Power on top at Indy….so far

As of 4 PM, with two hours to go before the gun, Will Power is the fastest qualifier for the Indy 500 with a four-lap average speed of 230.323 mph — set midway through Round 1 of qualifications May 17 for the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race.

Ed Carpenter set the tone early in qualifications with a four-lap average speed of 230.114 mph in the No. 20 Fuzzy's Ultra Premium Vodka car, and Ryan Hunter-Reay followed two hours later with an average of 230.011 mph in the No. 28 DHL car for Andretti Autosport. They were joined in the 230 club by Simon Pagenaud (230.070) and JR Hildebrand (230.027).

But it is all meaningless because drivers can make as many attempts as they like.
