July 16, 2004 | 7:04 P.M. EST
Rice edged teammate Vitor Meira by just three-hundredths of a second to take his fourth pole of the season, and his second in a row. This year’s Indianapolis 500 winner qualified on the pole and won two weeks ago at Kansas Speedway, and also was pole qualifier at Homestead, Florida and Indianapolis.
Andretti Green Racing will occupy the No. 3, 4, 5 and 7 starting positions. IndyCar Series points leader Tony Kanaan will start fifth.
