Saavedra nabs Indy Lights Fontana pole

9.14.2012 (Via RACER) – Sebastian Saavedra scored the pole position for the Firestone Indy Lights season finale at Auto Club Speedway. Saavedra, who's racing in both IndyCar and Indy Lights this weekend, clocked in at the 2.0-mile track at a two-lap average speed of 189.640. AFS/Andretti Autosport teammate Carlos Munoz completed the front row, having also been on the front row at Canadian races Edmonton and Trois-Rivieres.

“This is the way we wanted to start the day! I got huge help from my teammate, and that's what teammates are for,” said Saavedra, who edged Munoz at the end of the session. “We have good qualifying and race pace.”

“A little sad as I was fast and my teammate pipped me for the pole position,” said Munoz. “Hopefully we work together for a nice race.”

Three of the next four are from Sam Schmidt Motorsports, including both title contenders Esteban Guerrieri (third) and Tristan Vautier (fifth). Jorge Goncalvez records his best start of the season in fourth for Belardi Auto Racing. Vautier leads Guerrieri by 11 points going into Saturday's race.
