Franchitti wins pole in Long Beach

Dario Franchitti has won the pole for Sunday’s IndyCar Series

race at Long Beach.

Franchitti came into the weekend ranked last in the IndyCar

standings and off to the worst start of his career. But he insisted

he’s not concerned about the start, and proved it with a big last

lap in Saturday’s qualifying.

Franchitti’s last lap was 1:07.2379 and bounced Ryan Hunter-Reay

off the pole at the last second.

Will Power was third and was followed by Takuma Sato, Mike

Conway and Helio Castroneves. The Fast Six had an even split of

three Chevrolets and three Hondas.

IndyCar penalized Scott Dixon, Oriole Serbia and Marco Andretti

in the first round.

Two weeks ago at Barber, IndyCar penalized Sato for interfering

with Justin Wilson’s qualifying lap.
