Will Power Puts Chevrolet on the Pole at Barber Motorsports Park
 BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (April 26, 2014) – Will Power, behind the wheel of his Chevrolet V6 powered No. 12 Verizon Team Penske car, won the pole for Sunday’s Indy Grand Prix of Alabama.  It is the third consecutive year that a Chevrolet IndyCar V6 2.2 liter twin turbo powered driver will lead the Verizon IndyCar Series field at Barber Motorsports Park.
 It is also the third Verizon P1 Award for Power at Barber Motorsports Park, and he has notched  two victories on the Alabama track.
 “Congratulations to Will Power for a great drive in qualifying,” said Chris Berube, Chevrolet Racing Program Manager, Verizon IndyCar Series. “Will and Team Penske have been solid all weekend and they demonstrated it by going out first and setting a pole time in the Firestone Fast Six that no other car could beat for the balance of the session. The track’s grip was falling through the afternoon as track temps exceeded 125F with air temperature in the low 80’s; both of these conditions were impacting lap times for everyone.  The fast and flowing nature of Barber Motorsports Park should provide a great race tomorrow for the fans, and hopefully a third consecutive win for Chevrolet.”
Other Chevrolet IndyCar V6 drivers in the Firestone Fast Six were Scott Dixon, No. 9 Target Chip Ganassi Chevrolet who qualified fifth, and Helio Castroneves, No. 3 AAA Team Penske Chevrolet who qualified sixth.
Juan Pablo Montoya, No. 2 PPG Team Penske Chevrolet, qualified eighth for his first race at Barber Motorsports Park.
The remaining drivers in the Firestone Fast Six were: James Hinchcliffe – second; Ryan Hunter-Reay – third, and Josef Newgarden – fourth – all Honda powered.
