2012 Indianapolis 500 Qualifying, Bump Day: Start Time, TV Schedule, Radio And More

Another warm, sunny day will greet race teams as they try to complete the field of 33 cars for the 96th Indianapolis 500 on Sunday. On Saturday, Ryan Briscoe narrowly won the pole on a tight front row, beating out Andretti Autosports drivers James Hinchcliffe and Ryan Hunter-Reay.

All drivers who failed to qualify will be trying for the final nine positions in the starting lineup on Sunday's Bump Day. Once positions 25-33 are filled, the bumping begins in earnest, putting the slowest car in the field, regardless of the day it qualified, "on the bubble." The slowest qualifier on Saturday was Sebastian Saavedra with a 222.811 four-lap average.

Here is the schedule for Sunday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
