Alonso could clinch pole at Indy 500

The McLaren Honda Andretti driver has put himself in a position to potentially clinch pole for the May 28 race.

Ed Carpenter, Takuma Sato and Scott Dixon made up the top three.

It came after inclement weather delayed practice and qualifying at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where Bourdais was injured after a huge crash.

The Frenchman made heavy contact with the wall at turn two, requiring surgery after suffering multiple fractures to his pelvis and a fracture to his right hip.
