Ed Carpenter and his No. 20 Chevrolet has taken the Pole for the 2018 Indianapolis 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway with a 4-lap average speed of 229.618 mph. It is his first Pole of the 2018 IndyCar season, and 4th of his IndyCar career. It is also his third Pole for the Indianapolis 500.

His daughter would say, "Good job Daddy!". Good job indeed! Carpenter would spoil the Penske front row party.

Also starting on the front row will be Penske IndyCar driver Simon Pagenaud and his No. 22 Chevrolet. Pagenaud is the 2016 IndyCar series champion but hasn't won the Indianapolis 500.

Will Power and his No. 12 Penske prepared Chevrolet will round out Row One with a 4-lap average of 228.607 mph.

2017 IndyCar Champion Josef Newgarden and his No. 1 Penske prepared Chevrolet will lead off Row Two with Sebastien Bourdais and his No. 18 Honda rounding out the top-five qualifiers.

Overall, it was an exciting day with plenty of drama. Carpenter was able to pull off a qualifying upset, can he do it again on race day ?

Next up, the IndyCar series will practice twice more before the 2018 Indianapolis 500 on Sunday!
