INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Michel Jourdain Jr. was the only driver who failed to make the Indianapolis 500 field during Bump Day qualifying Sunday.
The Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing driver from Mexico tried to get into the field Saturday, the first day of qualifying, but fell short. The team switched engines and copied setups from teammates Graham Rahal and James Jakes to help figure out what was wrong. Nothing worked.
Jourdain never posted an official time Sunday because the team backed off 15 minutes before the final deadline, sensing it couldn't reach the 33rd-place time to get into the field for May 26 race. Katherine Legge held on with an average speed of 223.176 mph for four laps.
