The crew members for NTT IndyCar series driver Fernando Alonso (66) pushes his vehicle into the garage after Fernando Alonso crashed in turn two during practice for the 103rd Running of the Indianapolis 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Mechanics labored Wednesday in the buttoned-down McLaren garage trying to rebuild a vehicle for Alonso to qualify this weekend for the Indy 500.

The 2018 victor set the field ablaze with his #12 5G entry with a 229.745mph average speed lap across the 2.5mile oval with Indy GP race victor Pagenaud narrowly behind on a 229.703mph lap. It's not a bad start.

"I'm sorry for the team and the guys that have to work a lot now". I'm trying to stay careful with it. I never try and push until it's time.

As always, the draft-aided speeds on the overall leaderboard are fun to look at, but let's take a look at the no-tow leaderboard to get a better feel for outright speed on day two. I'm really happy to be here with the group again and trying to go for a good month. "We've got to put one foot in front of the other". Now Harding is truly in the game, with far more responsibilities than hosting 5,000 customers of his asphalt and concrete business on Carb Day before the Indy 500. Clarkson has 18 singles boasting multi-platinum, platinum and gold certifications around the world and total worldwide sales of more than 25 million albums and 36 million singles. It's insane how much time and tires you have. Qualifying is very important.

Just after noon Eastern time, Fernando Alonso became the first driver to find the wall during May 2019. "I started with what I raced previous year and it definitely was not in the window".

"In three years, we're just as competitive as Penske", Harding said of Roger Penske's vaunted organization, which this year is celebrating its 50th anniversary at the Indy 500.

The recently signed Red Bull junior driver suffered gearbox problems and was unable to pass his RoP, team-mate Max Chilton jumped in his vehicle for the remainder of the day once it was fixed as O'Ward was not permitted onto the track. Rookie Ben Hanley was the slowest at 224.361 miles per hour, but that is a margin of just.7879 of a second that separates positions one through 36.

Practice continues this week, and qualifying is this weekend.
