Associated Press logo Associated Press 24/06/2017

Australian driver Will Power has qualified second behind teammate Helio Castroneves who claimed pole position for the IndyCar race at Road America in Wisconsin.

The result gives Team Penske a stranglehold on the first two rows of the race.

Brazilian Castroneves turned in a lap time of 1:41.30 on Saturday for his 50th career pole, and third of the season.

Castroneves beat last year's race winner Power by .06 seconds at the rural Wisconsin road course.

Two more Penske drivers will start in the second row after Josef Newgarden finished third and Simon Pagenaud came in fourth.

Penske drivers have also turned in the fast practice times all weekend.

Points leader Scott Dixon will start fifth, with Graham Rahal starting sixth.

All six of the top drivers are separated by 49 points atop the crowded season leaderboard.
