-- INDIANAPOLIS -- Two-time pole winner Ed Carpenter had the fastest car in Indianapolis 500 qualifying Saturday with a four-lap average of 230.468 mph.
All times will be erased for Sunday's nine-car pole shootout.
Qualifying was marred by a frightening crash that sent Sebastien Bourdais to a hospital complaining of pain in his right leg. The Frenchman hit a SAFER barrier in the second turn head-on. He had topped 231 mph on his two previous laps.
Drivers from Chip Ganassi Racing and Andretti Autosport took six of the top nine spots.
Two-time Formula One champ Fernando Alonso was seventh at 230.034.
Will Power was the only Team Penske driver to make the shootout.
