Indy GP for another power-ful qualifying display on Will

INDIANAPOLIS – Amid his joy at pulling off a qualifying effort that helped soothe a difficult early season, Conor Daly looked at the results Friday and marveled at what he saw at the top of the chart.

Will Power, again, won his mastery of the flying lap to win the pole position on Saturday’s GMR Grand Prix at the 2.439-mile, 14-turn road course at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. It was the 64th Power’s career in pole, pulling him into three of Mario Andretti’s IndyCar records.

Power’s lap of 1: 09.7664 in his Team Penske Chevrolet was literally a blink better than Alex Palou’s in 1: 09.8090 in his Chip Ganassi Racing Honda. Penske driver Josef Newgarden was third in 1: 09.8343, followed by Daly’s surprising and inspiring effort in 1: 09.9063 in his Ed Carpenter Racing Chevrolet.
