Power wins pole at St. Pete as title contenders stumble

ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. — ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Will Power won his fifth pole of the season and flirted with the St. Petersburg track record Saturday in qualifying for the IndyCar season finale.

Power will start from the pole Sunday on the downtown temporary street course for the ninth time in his career. Power is in a three-way fight with Colton Herta and rookie Pato O'Ward for third in the final standings.

Dixon needs to finish only ninth or higher to wrap up a sixth championship. Newgarden is seeking a second consecutive title and third overall.
