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.
