Edmonton: Qualifying times

21 July 2012

A shower-hit qualifying session at the 2.24-mile, 13-turn temporary circuit at Edmonton City Center Airport for Sunday's Edmonton Indy race proved exciting and unpredictable, with Will Power caught out in round 2 leaving Ryan Hunter-Reay to post the fastest time of the Firestone Fast Six pole shootout.

However, an engine change starting grid penalty means that while Ryan Hunter-Reay is the official pole winner, he will instead start ten places back in 11th place. As a result, Dario Franchitti inherits the lead spot for the start of the race and will line-up alongside Ryan Briscoe.
