Six-time IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon made his presence felt early at 2022's Indy 500, becoming a five-time Indy 500 polesitter with a stunning 234 MPH average.

The stunning time is the fastest ever recorded at the iconic pre-race qualifying. And his fifth pole win is good for the second most in history.
