Will Power on Pole for IndyCAR Season Finale at St. Petersburg

Team Penske’s Will Power earned the pole for the 2020 IndyCar season finale, the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on Saturday, Oct. 24.

It’s Power’s fifth pole of the 2020 NTT IndyCar Series season and 62nd career pole. He posted a speed of 106.165 mph as he hopes to end the year on a high note.

Andretti Autosport’s Alexander Rossi will start second next to Power. Colton Herta was third quickest, posting a lap speed of 105.914 mph. James Hinchcliffe and Jack Harvey rounded out the top-five qualifiers.

Pato O’Ward will line up sixth, Sebastien Bourdais seventh and Josef Newgarden will vie for the championship from eighth. Rinus VeeKay and Oliver Askew complete the top 10 of the 24 drivers who made a lap. Championship contender Scott Dixon begins the race in 11th.

The session was delayed for several minutes as race control investigated incidents that resulted in penalties being handed out to Felix Rosenqvist, VeeKay and Askew. Rosenqvist had to drop to the back due to interference.
