Honda Racing Report–Franchitti Continues Pole Streak in Toronto

Franchitti Continues Pole Streak in Toronto
Defending Honda Indy Toronto race victor Dario Franchitti scored his third consecutive pole of the 2012
IZOD IndyCar Series season Saturday on the grounds of Exhibition Place in Toronto, and will lead the
field to the green flag on Sunday as he seeks his fourth Toronto win and second victory of the season.
Franchitti edged championship points leader Will Power to record Honda’s fifth pole in 10 events this
year. Three other Honda-powered drivers also made it through the first two rounds of knockout qualifying
to the final “Fast Six” round, led by Texas race winner Justin Wilson, who will start third in his Dale Coyne
Racing Honda Dallara.
Franchitti’s Target Chip Ganassi Racing teammate and Detroit race winner, Scott Dixon, will be starting
fifth. Alex Tagliani rounded out the top six qualifiers for Bryan Herta Autosport.
