IZOD IndyCar Series: Sao Paulo Indy 300 – Race Line-Up

Ryan Hunter-Reay earned his second Verizon P1 Award of 2013 by setting a track-record lap of 1 minute, 20.4312 seconds in the Firestone Fast Six for the fourth Itaipava Sao Paulo Indy 300 presented by Nestle.

“I gave it everything I had and it’s great to get the DHL Chevrolet up front again and on pole,” said Hunter-Reay, the reigning IZOD IndyCar Series champion who has a pair of runner-up finishes on the 2.536-mile, 11-turn temporary street circuit. “That’s three of the four races this year that we’ve been on the front row and twice on pole. I’m so happy for the guys and everything they’ve done for me.

“Starting on pole here is a challenge because you are a sitting duck out front on the long straights.”

Andretti Autosport teammate E.J. Viso will start a career-high second. Dario Franchitti, the pole winner in the inaugural Brazil race, will start third and Tony Kanaan will start a season-high fourth in his home race.

James Hinchcliffe and Scott Dixon will share Row 3 for the 75-lap race on May 5
