2022 Indy 500 qualifying results: pole, starting lineup
We take a look at the full 106th Indianapolis 500 starting grid, who is in pole position and which drivers to look out for in the Memorial Day weekend classic
Adopted local, and New Zealand native, Scott Dixon will be leading the pack with pole position in the 106th Indy 500. He won the 92nd Indy 500 in 2008, starting from pole position on that occasion as well. One of only 21 winners to have taken the checkered flag from pole position, Dixon has so far found that second win to be elusive.

In an interview with CBS Sports, Dixon said, “It’s all about winning the 500, man. Winning the pole does give you confidence, but it’s no guarantee of anything. You just keep knocking on that door, and I hope it opens up for me this year.”
Defending IndyCar series champion, Álex Palou will start in second place. The young Spaniard will be looking for his first win at the 500 and has put up some blazing fast times in qualifying. The front row will be rounded out by Rinus VeeKay, the 21-year-old flying Dutchman.
If history tells us anything it is that we should expect our winner to come from the front row. After all, three of the last four victors started from there. But 500 miles is a very long way, and anything can happen on race day.
Here is a look at the full starting grid.
