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

Saturday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway saw Ryan Briscoe advance to the top spot on Pole Day, with 23 other drivers also locking down positions in the 33-car starting grid. Sunday is Bump Day in Indy, with the nine remaining spots in the race up for grabs.

Any driver who failed to qualify on Saturday will be trying to earn one of the nine remaining positions in the starting lineup. Once positions No. 25-33 are filled, drivers can then start being bumped from the field, starting with the car who posted the slowest qualifying speed, on either Saturday or Sunday.

Here is the schedule for Sunday's action at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway:

Indianapolis 500 Practice: 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. ET

Qualifying for Bump Day begins: 12:00 p.m. ET

TV Coverage: NBC Sports Network, 12:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. ET

Live Streaming: Indy 500 website, beginning at 12:00 p.m. ET.

You can find complete information about the next week's worth of events on the official Indy 500 website.
