Th* 33-car lineup, rounded off In the final 10-mile qualifications Sunday, averaged a record 167.139 miles per hour. The old mark was 166.295 last year. The qualifying speeds ranged from 170.221 by Al Unser, who won the pole position May 16, to 165.373 by slowest qualifer Sammy Sessions. The 1969 field's spread was 170.568 to 160.851. Unser is not a former winner but the favorite of many Speedway veterans in his fifth .time. Bobby Unser will start for the eighth time. No really exotic cars made the program, although there are innovations in the British-built Brabhams and McLarens and the made-in-Germany McNamara. Eighteen of the cars are powered by turbocharged four-cylinder Offenhausers, 15 by turbocharged eight-cylinder Fords. Ruby and Jack Brabham, na live of Australia and three-time world road racing champion, rated among the top contenders qualified over the weekend, along with the second Bill Vukovich, whose father won the big race twice.

Only four rookies make the program, the smallest number since 1960. Foyt, with 12 Indianapolis starts behind him, is approached in Speedway experience only by Lloyd Ruby, starting for the llth time, and Dan Ruby also qualified solidly after a string of six straight engine failures in the last three weeks, McEIreath was the only driver able to "bump" an earlier qualifier and squeeze into the line-up in Sunday's final session He joined Foyt's four-car team averaged 166.821 in his Coyote Ford, and eliminated rookie Kevin Bartlett of Australia McEIreath himself had been bumped by Brabham Saturday Gurney Jim McEIreath and The three weeks of practice Roger McCluskey, for the ninth!and the lime trials for the Me- morial Day race were run off vithout a fatality at the 61-year- jld racing plant where 52 persons have been killed.
