Milwaukee IndyFest (West Allis, Wisconsin): Qualifying times

Marco Andretti completed his Friday sweep with pole position for Saturday's Milwaukee IndyFest late afternoon race at the Milwaukee Mile.
Marco Andretti claimed his third pole position in his IZOD IndyCar Series career with a two-lap qualifying time of 42.8584s (an average speed of 170.515mph) on the one-mile Milwaukee Mile.

It was an impressive dominant display by the entire Andretti Autosport team, with all four of their entries set to start Saturday late afternoon's Milwaukee IndyFest race in the top five positions of the grid.

James Hinchcliffe will line-up alongside Marco on the front row having rebounded from glancing the wall in the first of Friday's two practice session and losing track time as a result. He ended up 0.0245s off the pole time with this two-lap run.

Will Power is the only non-Andretti car in the top five, after he put his #12 Penske into third place alongside defending race champion Ryan Hunter-Reay for the start of tomorrow's race.

And EJ Viso put his Andretti-HVM co-entry into fifth place, meaning that he will start from the third row of the grid lining up alongside Sebastian Saavedra who was impressive for Dragon Racing in qualifying.
