Notes: None of Team Penske's Chevrolets were able to qualify within the top-nine for next Sunday's Indianapolis 500, leaving the team's four entries unable to compete in the Firestone Fast Nine and run for the pole on Sunday. All four cars struggled with speed as they did their best to gain traction with at least two qualifying runs apiece.  Tomorrow the teams will participate in an afternoon practice session as they continue to prepare their cars for next Sunday's race and work to improve their race trim.
Coverage: Tomorrow the team's four entries will participate in the afternoon practice session at Indianapolis Motor Speedway from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network and NBC Sports Gold. The 104th Running of the Indianapolis 500 will broadcast live on Sunday, August 23 at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
