Day 1 of Qualifying for the Indianapolis 500

After a hard day of qualifying on Saturday, May 18, Hoosier Ed Carpenter found himself on the pole for the 2013 Indianapolis 500. We're seeing a lot of the same names we've seen in the past — Dario Franchitti, Helio Castroneves, Will Power, and Tony Kanaan — but we're seeing a few new names too, like Carlos Munoz, the rookie from Colombia driving for Andretti Autosport, and James Jakes, who's driving for Rahal Letterman Lanigan.

Here's the first 24 drivers for the 500. Today (Sunday) is Bump Day, where the remaining 10 drivers will compete for 9 spots.
