The new qualifying format for the Indianapolis 500 will include three rounds over two days, with the pole-winner emerging from a "Fast Nine Shootout" on what used to be Bump Day. Cheap Orlando Arcia Jersey . IndyCar officials also said Friday there will be points incentives that have yet to be announced. Qualifying for the Indy 500 this year will begin on May 17 when the fastest 33 cars are locked into the field. All entries will be guaranteed at least one four-lap attempt to qualify, and the fastest nine drivers will move into the shootout. On Sunday, the previous days times will be erased and entries 10 through 33 will complete another four-lap qualifying attempt to determine their starting position. The fastest nine drivers from Saturday will then make one four-lap attempt to determine the prestigious pole winner and starting front row. The Indy 500 has had four-lap qualifying runs since 1939. The Fast Nine pole shootout was introduced in 2010, but was on Saturday. The change comes as IndyCar struggles to fill the 33-car field, making the once tension-filled Bump Day drama-free the last two years. Without additional entrants on hand trying to make the race, Sunday had become a glorified practice session. By making qualifying stretch over two days, Sunday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has become relevant again. "We have a desire to give fans more opportunities to see IndyCar drivers on the track when theres a lot at stake, not just with practice, but where they are out there with putting it on the line in a way that matters," said Mark Miles, CEO of Hulman Motorsports. "I think in the last many years, Saturday has been the day in qualifying, but theres been an opportunity to add more compelling content on Sunday, and thats what were trying to do here." IndyCar driver Graham Rahal called the new format "intriguing" and praised it for adding fan appeal. "The most important thing to realize here is we have to give our fans a better product both on TV and at track," Rahal said. "As we know Sunday in the past has been a moot point. Now I think theres going to be quite a bit of buildup Saturday, see who the 33 will be, then go into Sunday and wait till the very end to see who the pole winner is going to be. "Im pretty excited for the changes that are ahead. Of course, I am a traditionalist, but Im always one thats open for change as well." The format will make life a little more difficult for NASCAR driver Kurt Busch, who will attempt to become the first driver in 10 years to run both the Indy 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 on the same day. Busch will now have to qualify in Indianapolis on Saturday, fly to Charlotte, N.C., for NASCARs All-Star race that evening, then return to Indianapolis to determine his starting spot in Sundays qualifying session. Under the old format, had Busch locked himself into the field on Saturday, he would not have necessarily have needed to return to Indianapolis following the All-Star race unless he was in danger of being bumped out. ABC will broadcast the final two hours of Saturdays qualifications and three hours on Sunday. Additional hours of qualifying will be carried on ESPN3, the network said. "Down through history, qualifying for the Indianapolis 500 has made for many dramatic and compelling television moments, and were confident that the leadership of Indianapolis Motor Speedway and IndyCar will continue that tradition with this new format," said Rich Feinberg, ESPN vice-president, motorsports, production.

Heres who Saints legend Le Tiss has gone for, including his Elite Player pick from Sergio Aguero, David Silva, Anthony Martial and Juan Mata...Sergio AgueroTheres absolutely no doubt about my Elite Player pick. Hes world class and he may not be top goalscorer in the Premier League but thats more down to playing time as hes got a better goals-per-minute record than Jamie Vardy, Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku this season.Ander HerreraIm wary that he picked up a knock on Thursday night but if hes passed fit Id have hiim in there. Cheap Stephen Vogt Jersey. Hes got a knack of arriving at the right place at the right time and usually takes his chances.Michael CarrickHes still England and Uniteds best central-midfielder for me and hell complete more passes than any other Manchester United player by some distance.David de GeaId expect him to be pretty busy on Sunday and even if he doesnt manage a clean sheet he should make plenty of saves, with Aguero and Yaya Toure happy to have a go from range.Yaya ToureHes not made my Manchester best XI but Id still have to have him in there, more for the ability he possess than the form hes shown this season. His set-pieces probably justify his selections more than his work rate.FernandinhoHe may not score many goals but he clearly gets rewarded for the other parts of the game, with an average of nearly 50 points per game, making tackles, interceptions and passes all afternoon.
