IndyCar: Driver Rankings for GMR Grand Prix at Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course | IndyCar

Alex Palou, Chip Ganassi Racing at Indianapolis

Alex Palou: 10

A dominant drive from the green flag to the checkered flag, and takes over the lead in the championship.

Pato O’Ward: 10

Another runner-up finish for O’Ward, his third in five races. He may not have the win, but he is carrying a ton of momentum into the biggest race of the year.

Alexander Rossi: 9

Things are beginning to click for Rossi and his new team, and it feels like another win is on the horizon.

Christian Lundgaard: 9

A brilliant weekend, considering how the season had started for the RLL Racing team. Pole position and nearly a podium finish should have them feeling good as the Month of May continues.

Felix Rosenqvist: 8

He narrowly missed his third pole on the IMS road course, and scored another top-five finish in what was a sensational day for the Arrow McLaren organization.

Scott Dixon: 7

In typical Dixon fashion, he turned a poor qualifying effort into a solid finish.

Josef Newgarden: 7

His rough day of qualifying didn’t help, but a decent result today just might provide the positive vibes they need for the 500.

Marcus Ericsson: 6

He may have given up the lead in the driver standings, but he will now set his sights on back-to-back 500 wins.

Colton Herta: 6

The weekend started poorly with an engine fire, but Herta improved five positions in the race for a solid finish.

Graham Rahal: 7

The great qualifying effort was ruined on the opening lap with contact, but he rebounded nicely for his 12th top-ten finish in the 14 IMS road course races, which is the most among all drivers.

Romain Grosjean: 5

Expectations were high for Grosjean coming into this weekend, and for good reason. It was a massive disappointment but the Andretti team will try to turn the page and get ready for his second 500 start.

Will Power: 4

This was an event that Power had dominated in the past, but a mistake in qualifying and contact with Kyle Kirkwood early in the race made for a disappointing weekend.

Rinus VeeKay: 4

The struggles for VeeKay and the entire Ed Carpenter Racing team continue. They are always strong contenders on the oval, so they have that to look forward to.

Kyle Kirkwood: 5

He was quick in qualifying but his contact with Power put him at the back of the field and he was never able to recover.

Marcus Armstrong: 5

It was a quiet day for the rookie, who now must wait nearly a month before his next chance to get behind the wheel.

Scott McLaughlin: 4

The Team Penske struggles hurt McLaughlin the most, as he took a big tumble in the championship standings.
