Indy 500 winners Dixon, Franchitti robbed at a Taco Bell

Turning laps at 232.595 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is unsafe, but the real danger seems to be lurking at the Taco Bell around the corner from the track.

Fernando Alonso will start his first Indianapolis 500 from the middle of the second row of the grid after qualifying fifth for the race on 28 May.

The crew members pushed the No. 29 auto out of the garage with eight minutes left before they had to go through a technical inspection.

"I won't be happy unless I'm first", said Rossi.

The suspected robbers are 14 and 15 years old.

Though the change was completed in time, Alonso says a further engine problem during his four-lap run in the "Fast 9" segment of qualifying prevented him from challenging Scott Dixon's eventual pole-winning average speed of 232.164mph.

As he ordered dinner for his teammates at one of the few fast-food restaurants still open near Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Dixon and three-time Indianapolis 500 victor Dario Franchitti were robbed at gunpoint while waiting in the drive-thru line.

The teenagers allegedly took credit cards as well as Davies-Dixon's wallet and identification.

There was some speculation that Harper was reacting to Strickland saying after Game 1 that he would throw Harper more fastballs. Posey told reporters after the game why he didn't get involved in the brawl, but did not mention a deal between Strickland.

"It feels like we're at this great big party and everyone is sharing it with us, you know, because we love this place", said Emma Dixon.

Kannan said the Kiwi driver was pretty calm when he got back to his teammates following the incident. The cars' setups change significantly between the quali and race weekends, so starting at the front arguably isn't as important as in Alonso's Formula 1 day job. He was apprehended by a police dog.

He went from one of the best moments in his life to one of his worst.

We have reached out to Scott Dixon for his reaction, but he has declined to comment. He is scheduled to appear Tuesday in Toronto as part of the series' media tour - and he's likely to be peppered with questions about what happened.

IndyCar driver Tony Kanaan told reporters this morning that Dixon was making a food run for a group of drivers. "Obviously I'm glad they're OK".

"But the team were unbelievable, there were guys from all six cars working on vehicle 29 just to make it possible".

Three-time Indy 500 champion Dario Franchitti was also robbed.
