Felix Rosenqvist earned the fourth pole position of his NTT INDYCAR SERIES career on Saturday. The driver of the No. 6 Arrow McLaren Dallara-Chvrolet posted a two-lap average speed of 220.264 mph, the only driver to exceed 220 in qualifying. Joining the back-to-back Texas Motor Speedway pole winner will be Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon.
Dixon and the Honda contingent will look to break up the dominant pace shown by the Chevrolet-powered teams, who have paced both on-track sessions today. After leading the most laps in a runner-up effort last year, this morning’s practice leader Scott McLaughlin will start 15th. Last year’s race winner Josef Newgarden will roll off fourth on the grid in search of his third win at the 1.5-mile oval.
After being caught up in an opening lap crash during his series debut last month, A.J. Foyt Racing’s Benjamin Pedersen rebounded and will start best of the rookies in 13th. With the grid for tomorrow’s 250-lap race set, preparations will begin for Sunday’s race.
