IndyCar Series 2013
Dario Franchitti will head an all-Honda front row for Sunday’s GoPro Indy Grand Prix of Somona after leading his Target Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Scott Dixon to a 1-2 result in IZOD IndyCar Series qualifying Saturday at the Raceway at Sonoma.
Continuing his late-season charge for the championship, Dixon will be making his second front-row start of 2013, while teammate Charlie Kimball backed up his victory at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course two weeks ago by making the “Fast Six” final qualifying round for the second consecutive race. He will start sixth in his Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing Honda Dallara.
Justin Wilson and Graham Rahal just missed the cut for the Fast Six, but will start seventh and eighth,respectively, with Simon Pagenaud making it six Hondas in the top 10. Sunday’s 85-lap race, the 15th round in the 2013 IZOD IndyCar Series, starts at 4:30 p.m. EDT, with live television coverage on the NBC Sports Network.
