2012 Indy 500 Schedule: Carb Day Features Firestone Freedom 100

It's Carb Day at the Indy 500, which means there'll be practicing, racing and, of course, Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Carb Day is short for "carburation day," which isn't a real thing anymore now that cars don't have carburetors, but the name sticks, and is a good excuse to race. It's also the last day of practice for racers in Sunday's main event.

Here's the schedule for the day's activities at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway:

10:30am - Q&A with INDYCAR Crew Members, Coke Stage, Plaza

10:45am - Firestone Pin Distribution, Pagoda Plaza

11am - Practice Begins

Noon - Firestone Indy Lights Pre-Race Begins

12:30 - Firestone Freedom 100

1:35 - IZOD Performance Pit Stop Challenge

3:30 - Miller Lite Carb Day Concert Begins, Lynyrd Skynyrd

The Freedom 100 is an Indy Lights Series race, and the Pit Stop Challenge is a way to watch pit crews see who is fastest in hopes of winning some prize money.
