Charlie Kimball Makes First IndyCar Pole At Texas Motor Speedway

10/6/2017 

Charlie Kimball has made his first IndyCar Series pole with a two-lap average speed of 222.556 mph at the repaved and reconfigured Texas Motor Speedway.

Kimball's run Friday was more than 3 mph faster than the previous two-lap qualifying record at Texas. Will Power averaged 219.182 mph four years ago. Kimball's first pole comes in his 109th career start.

Series points leader Scott Dixon will start on the front row Saturday night alongside his Chip Ganassi Racing teammate. Dixon's qualifying average was 222.516 mph.

Alexander Rossi qualified third, ahead of Tony Kanaan and Tristan Vautier, who is filling in for injured Sebastien Bourdais.

Graham Rahal, the defending Texas winner who last weekend won both races in Detroit, will start 11th at the 1 1/2-mile track.
