INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Marco Andretti has put himself back in the Indianapolis 500 lineup with an incredible final run to beat the qualifying gun Sunday.

Andretti posted a four-lap qualifying average of 224.628 mph on the final run of the day. He’ll start 28th, the inside of Row 10. Just minutes earlier, he was bumped from the field by England’s Alex Lloyd.

A little more than an hour before that, Danica Patrick finally got the break she needed _ a dry track. Her qualifying run of 224.861 put her in the No. 26 spot, the middle of Row 9.

The third Team Penske driver, Ryan Briscoe, also qualified for the May 29 race with a speed of 224.639. Paul Tracy had the day’s top average of 224.939 and will start 25th, the inside of Row 9.
