Michigan Pole To Kanaan

BROOKLYN, Mich. - Tony Kanaan won the pole for the IRL IndyCar Series Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway. Kanaan posted a lap of 215.871 mph around the two-mile oval for his first pole of the season.

Rookie points leader Kosuke Matsuura claimed his career best IRL series starting position this afternoon with a third-place qualifying run at the Michigan Indy 400.

Matsuura moved up to the front row after second-place qualifier Helio Castroneves was sent to the back of the grid for an engine change after MBNA Pole Qualifying.

Just a week after missing the Milwaukee event due an injury suffered in qualifying, Scott Dixon registered his best qualifying performance of the year with a third today. The reigning IndyCar Series champion's previous best start this season was a fifth at Phoenix.

Sam Hornish's fifth marks his four top-five qualifying performance in the last five races. During the last five events, Hornish has finished in the top-four three times and climbed into the top-five after falling to ninth overall after the Indianapolis 500.

Vitor Meira rounded out the top-five qualifiers.
