17506Jpg
Scott Dixon won his third consecutive IndyCar Series pole and led an all-Toyota front row along with Helio Castroneves as Toyota swept the top-six spots in qualifying for Saturday’s Firestone Indy 200 at the Nashville Superspeedway.

Dixon turned a track-record lap of 22.6952 seconds, 206.211 mph in the No. 9 Target Chip Ganassi Racing Panoz G Force/Toyota/Firestone.

Today’s pole marks the fifth front-row starting position for Scott Dixon this season and the seventh time he’s been in the top-four in the last eight events. Dixon now has four poles, a second, a third, a fourth and a sixth in his last eight IndyCar starts.

Dixon’s pole is the fifth of the season for Target Chip Ganassi Racing and the team’s fourth in the last five races and its fifth in the last seven. Dixon won the pole at the most recent race at Kansas, as well as at Motegi and Richmond, while Scheckter was on the pole at Texas.

The Firestone Indy 200 starts at 8 p.m. (EDT) Saturday and will be broadcast live by ESPN2 and the IMS Radio Network.
