Will Power (#12 Team Penske Honda) pole qualifier, 6th pole of 2011 and 22nd career pole; first 1-2-3 qualifying performance for Team Penske in 2011:
“I worked hard for that one. We knew we just had to ‘lay one down’ since starting up front is so important here. Having my two teammates between us and the Target guys is exactly what we needed from qualifying today. Still, as we saw at Mid-Ohio, a yellow [caution flag] at the wrong time in the race and you can find yourself right at the back of the field.”
