Veteran Indianapolis 500-mile race driver Paul Russo of Canoga Park, California, closes his eyes and relaxes after qualifying his Novi Special at 144.817 miles an hour for the Memorial day race. Russo's time was the best turned in so far this year in qualifications. Ignoring wind and a track slowed by rain, the 43 year old driver had two laps of 144.462 and one at 145.255 to gain the inside spot in the fourth row for the May 30 classic.
