INDIANAPOLIS Indiana (www.incnow.tv) - In a little more than a day, Katherine Legge went from Indianapolis 500 spectator to Indianapolis 500 qualifier, getting the final spot in the 2013 field Sunday on Bump Day.
Legge thus became the fourth women in the field for the 97th 500.
Legge logged her first track time in the morning practice session and later made her second 500 in a car that was a skeleton in the garage 48 hours earlier.
Michel Jourdain Jr. was the only driver failing to make the field.
Josef Newgarden (225.731 mph) was the fastest second-day qualifier. Also qualifying were Graham Rahal (225.007), Sebastian Saavedra (224.929), rookie Tristan Vautier (224.873), Ana Beatriz (224.184), Pippa Mann (224.005), rookie Conor Daly (223.582) and Buddy Lazier (223.442).
Lazier, 45, will make his 17th Indianapolis 500 start - the most in the field. The average speed of the field is 226.176 mph.
There are four first-year Indy 500 competitors and four females in the field.
