INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Scott Dixon slammed the brakes on IndyCar's current youth movement by winning his fourth Indianapolis 500 pole by a mere 0.03 seconds in qualifying. He beat Colton Herta by approximately six feet for the top starting spot in next week's race.

The front row will be Dixon, 21-year-old Herta and 20-year-old Rinus VeeKay.

Dixon is the six-time IndyCar champion and won the Indy 500 in 2008.
