With 14 drivers getting qualifying penalties the grid for the IndyCar Grand Prix of Long Beach takes some figuring out. Happily IndyCar have done the hard work for us.
The top three in qualifying were Ryan Briscoe, Will Power and Ryan Hunter-Reay. They all get penalties and falls to 11th to 13th respectively.
