INDIANAPOLIS, May 10 - Pole Qualifying Sunday after Indy washout. Heavy rain and thunderstorms May 10 forced the postponement of MBNA Pole Day for the 87th Indianapolis 500 until May 11 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Qualifying is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. (EDT) Sunday, with practice starting at 11 a.m.

Pre-qualifying practice Saturday was interrupted by an accident involving Billy Boat. Rain started slightly more than 20 minutes after Boat's accident as track crews cleaned the debris from the accident, and the track was closed within 90 minutes as violent thunderstorms swept through central Indiana.

It was the first time Pole Day has been completely washed out at Indianapolis since 1990.
