Power wins pole for Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg

ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) -

   For the fourth straight time, Will Power will start from the pole position at the 2013 Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on Sunday.

   Power won the pole after three rounds of knockout qualifying, his 30th of his career.

   "We changed through every session and we've never done that in qualifying," Power said. "As we know, the race is always a bit of mayhem, and a lot different."

   Other drivers topping the field a tad more surprising. Japanese driver Takuma Sato will start from the front row for the first time since 2001, while Simona Di Silvestro will start third. She qualifies for her first ever Firestone Fast Six and will start on the inside of row two.

  The race is scheduled to start at noon tomorrow, with rain in the forecast for later in the afternoon. Indy car officials say the race can still go in rain, but lightning would more than likely lead to a postponement of the race until Monday.
