1985 Indianapolis 500 Pole Day photos
Photos by Bob Ray
Tom Sneva gets up to speed early Saturday morning.
Mario on his way to qualifying the Beatrice Lola for the 4th starting spot.
Mario has been facing this army of photogs for 20 years at this point.
Neither AJ nor Jim Gilmore look pleased with AJ's qualifying run. Probably not as he started 21st.
Ed Pimm qualified 22nd but had a good race, finishing 9th.
Michael Andretti on his way to a 15th place qual run. He would finish 8th in the race.
Johnny Rutherford started 30th but brought it home 6th on race day.
Little Al qualified 11th but engine failure on race day left him with a 25th place finish.
Ironic this is the last photo Bob took. When we went back the next year these garages were gone and the new concrete ones were in place.
