After qualifying yesterday for today’s race # 1 in the front row in Position 2, Mike backed up his performance by posting the fastest time of the 25 competitors this morning to capture the Pole for Sundays Race 2 here in Belle Isle in Detroit.

“The car just keeps getting better and better,” commented English driver Mike Conway. “It actually felt easy to post a good time. I look forward to the race today and especially the race tomorrow.”

“This is great to get our first Pole,” commented team owner Dale Coyne. “We have had many front row performances, but I am thankful for Mike bringing us our first Pole. Maybe a yellow Sonny’s car is good luck.”

Saturday morning will be the second qualifying session for Sunday’s second leg of the double header race weekend. Sunday’s race will also be televised on ABC at 3:30.
