Report[edit]

Background[edit]

Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a four-turn rectangular-oval track that is 2.5 miles (4.023 km) long.[3] The track's turns are banked at 9 degrees, while the front stretch, the location of the finish line, has no banking. The back stretch, opposite of the front, also has a zero degree banking.[3] The track's front and back straightaway are both 3,300 ft (1,000 m), while the short straightaways between turn one and two, as well as between turn three and four are 660 feet (200 m) long.[3] The racetrack has seats for more than 250,000 spectators.[4]

Before the race, Jimmie Johnson was leading the Drivers' Championship with 696 points, while Clint Bowyer stood in second with 640 points.[5] Carl Edwards followed in third with 623, one point ahead of Kevin Harvick and forty-five ahead of Dale Earnhardt, Jr. in fourth and fifth.[5] Matt Kenseth, with 576, was in sixth; tied with Kyle Busch, who was scored seventh.[5] Eighth-placed Greg Biffle was sixteen points ahead of Brad Keselowski and twenty-two ahead of Kasey Kahne in ninth and tenth.[5] In the Manufacturers' Championship, Chevrolet was leading with 134 points, nine points ahead of Toyota.[6] Ford was third with 95 points.[6]

Practice and qualifying[edit]

Ryan Newman won the pole position, his fiftieth of his career

Two practice sessions are scheduled to be held in preparation for the race.[7] The first session, held on July 26, 2013, was 85 minutes long, while second session was held on the following day and was 120 minutes long.[7]

During the first practice session, Juan Pablo Montoya, for the Earnhardt Ganassi Racing team, was quickest ahead of Kurt Busch in second and Austin Dillon in third.[8] Paul Menard was scored fourth, and Kahne managed fifth.[8] Joey Logano, Harvick, Martin Truex, Jr., Kenseth, and Earnhardt, Jr. rounded out the top ten quickest drivers in the session.[8] In the final practice session for the race, Kurt Busch was the quickest of the forty-five drivers who participated.[9] Kahne followed in second, ahead of Montoya and Johnson in third and fourth.[9] Marcos Ambrose, who was twenty-second quickest in second practice,[8] managed fifth.[9] Kahne had the best ten–lap consecutive average with a speed of 182.419 miles per hour (293.575 km/h).[9]

During qualifying, forty-five cars were entered, meaning two cars were bumped from the race because of NASCAR's qualifying procedure.[10] Ryan Newman clinched his fiftieth career pole position, with a record speed of 187.531 miles per hour (301.802 km/h).[11] After the qualifying session ended, Newman said, "I'll admit I was emotional, for me. Especially because it was the Brickyard and I hadn't won a pole here before, and I've won so many poles. It's been so long since I've won a pole people ask me if I've run out of fuel for the rockets."[11] He was joined on the front row of the grid by Johnson.[12] Edwards qualified third, Denny Hamlin took fourth, and Tony Stewart started fifth.[12] Kurt Busch, Kahne, Montoya, Jeff Gordon, and Ambrose completed the first ten positions on the grid.[12] The two drivers who failed to qualify for the race were Mike Bliss and Scott Speed.[12]
