Penske Leads Toyota in Kansas Qualifying

- Marlboro Team Penske drivers Sam Hornish Jr. and Helio Castroneves (both Marlboro Toyota) were the highest-qualifying Toyotas at the Kansas Speedway and will start fourth and sixth at Sunday's Argent Mortgage Indy 300.

- With today's showing, Penske Racing has now been the top qualifying Toyota in six of the seven races run this season. Helio Castroneves has been the top Toyota in four of those six with Sam Hornish Jr. now the top qualifying Toyota in two races after today's effort.

- In addition to starting in the first three rows tomorrow, the two Marlboro Team Penske cars finished second and third here at Kansas a year ago. Helio Castroneves placed second and Gil de Ferran was third. Fellow Toyota driver Scott Dixon won the pole in last year's race, but finished sixth in a race that was eventually won on fuel strategy.

- A.J. Foyt IV qualified 15th today, his best effort of the season and the second-best of his career. The 20-year-old is less than four-tenths off the pole and a little more than a tenth off his first top-10 qualifying effort.
