Stefan Wilson scored his first Firestone Indy Lights Series pole at Kentucky Speedway for Andretti Autosport.
In cool conditions, Wilson's two-lap average of 191.659 was more than one mile per hour quicker than the rest of the field. Brandon Wagner starts second in his second start for Team Moore Racing. Series debutant Jacob Wilson, no relation to Stefan Wilson, qualified a solid third for Belardi Auto Racing.
While those three topped out over 190mph for their two lap average, spots four to eight were tightly bunched in the 189s. Jorge Goncalvez and Esteban Guerrieri completed the top five on the grid.
Josef Newgarden, who merely needs to start to clinch the season championship, lines up sixth. Bryan Clauson, who led the morning practice, timed in only 11th in the fourth Sam Schmidt-entered car in the 13-car-field.
The race goes green Sunday at noon ET live on Versus.
