INDIANAPOLIS – Kyle Larson has officially secured a spot in the 2024 Indianapolis 500.

On Saturday afternoon, Larson put down a four-lap average speed of 232.56 mph, placing him sixth on the speed charts and safely locking the No. 17 entry into the Fast 12. On Sunday, the 12 fastest drivers from Saturday's session will run for pole position.

While the end result was a successful one, the day did not get off to a hot start for the group. On his first timed attempt, Larson's car flashed an error message on his steering wheel and the engine experienced a loss of power. The Elk Grove, California, native pulled off the track early and did not record a lap time on this first attempt.

Thanks to the format of Indianapolis 500 qualifying, the team had several hours to fix the issue and return to the track. On the second run, the Arrow McLaren team had fixed the issue and it showed on the speed chart. Larson's attempt moved him safely inside the top-12 spots to the sixth position where he would stay the rest of the afternoon. While the group made one additional run, Larson once again pulled off the track early and took the second attempt as the team's official time.

Two other Arrow McLaren entries also made it into the second round of qualifying. Larson will be joined by teammates Alexander Rossi and Pato O'Ward in the Fast 12.
