Associated Press Associated Press 16/07/2016

Australian driver Will Power has claimed fourth spot on the grid for Sunday's (Monday AEST) Toronto IndyCar.

New Zealander Scott Dixon grabbed pole for the race when he used a fast final lap to snatch top spot from Helio Castroneves at the buzzer in qualifying.

Dixon turned a lap of 59.9073 seconds on Saturday (Sunday AEST) to land his 24th career pole and first since Mid-Ohio last year.

Castroneves wound up second with a lap of 59.9425sec on the temporary street course at Exhibition Place.

"Whenever you can start on the pole, especially on the street courses, it's a big help," said Dixon, who squeezed in his final lap.

IndyCar Series points leader Simon Pagenaud of France qualified third with a time of 1m.2293sec ahead of Power (1m.4085sec) as Team Penske took the three spots behind Dixon.
