INDIANAPOLIS — Canadian James Hinchcliffe spent 12 months plotting his Indianapolis 500 comeback, but the final chapter has been put on hold for at least one more day — possibly another year. It’s weird to think this isn’t actually the worst qualifying day we’ve had here.”That was last year when he was surprisingly bumped out of the 33-car starting field and missed the race. “We had this spare car all ready to go sitting here, pretty turn-key,” team co-owner Sam Schmidt said. The six slowest drivers from Saturday will each have once chance to fill the final three starting spots for the May 26 race. Hinchcliffe couldn’t find enough speed Saturday and backed off his first attempt in the rebuilt car.
