Indianapolis 500 2012 Qualifying, Bump Day: Start Time, Radio, TV Schedule And More

The pole position has been set for the 2012 Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, May 27. Saturday's qualifying runs on Pole Day set the top 24 spots for the prestigious race, but there are still plenty of IndyCar drivers battling to get into those final nine positions in the starting lineup.

Ryan Briscoe will hold the pole position at the big event and Southern California drivers Townsend Bell and Charlie Kimball grabbed spots in the top 20 for the Indy 500. Still, there is the danger of some of those top 24 being knocked out on Sunday's Bump Day.

All drivers who failed to qualify will be trying for the final nine positions in the starting lineup. Here is the schedule for Sunday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. All times are Eastern.

9am - 10am - Indianapolis 500 Practice

10:15am - Armed Forces Enlistment Ceremony Begins

Noon - Qualifications Begin

You can watch live streaming of Pole Day on the official Indy 500 website beginning at 9:00 a.m. PT.
