Belle Isle, MICHIGAN - (June 1, 2013) - Mike Conway came to Detroit for a one-off race with Dale Coyne Racing and delivered a Pole Position qualifying effort on Saturday morning to give the hard working DCR team their first ever Pole Win in the IZOD IndyCar Series.
After qualifying yesterday for today’s race number one in the front row in Position 2, Mike backed up his performance on Saturday by posting the fastest time of the 25 competitors to capture the Verizon P1 Pole for Sunday's Dual in Detroit Race Two here in Belle Isle, MI.
We’ve got a really good starting position, with second and first, and we couldn’t have asked for much more coming into this weekend," said Conway. "To do it as well as we’ve done this weekend is amazing. Big credit to the Dale Coyne Racing team and my teammate for giving us a good car."
“This is great to get our first Pole,” commented team owner Dale Coyne. “We have had many front row performances, but I am thankful for Mike bringing us our first Pole. Maybe a yellow Sonny’s car is good luck.
This weekend marks the first of three double-header race weekends in 2013. Saturday’s race starts with ABC television live coverage starting at 3:30PM (EDT). Sunday’s race will also be televised on ABC-TV starting at 3:30 p.m. (EDT).
