Helio on Pole Position

Helio Castroneves is on pole for the 2003 Indy 500.

It was a great set of laps in difficult conditions.

A top effort by the Andretti-Green drivers with Kanaan and Robby Gordon finishing off the front row, Dan Wheldon in 5th and Michael Andretti after a near-miss on his first lap back in 13th. Also a top effort by Tony Renna, 8th and fastest of the Kelly drivers.

Chevy as expected are down the back, Hornish the best in 18th, though it seems that Hornish is able to consistently keep his lap times, maybe this could be what gets him towards the front on race day.

The wind was terrible. The guys who ran laps around 230 mph earned their pay. Arie did not even try to qualify. Penske rolled the dice and won as usual. AJ Foyt IV made an incerdible save in turn 2. He lost the car and it was going backwards near full speed. He used his mirrors and kept it off the wall.

John Andretti, Alex Barron, Bryan Herta, Mak Papis, Jimmy Vassar, Airton Dare, Jimmy Kite, and Billy Boat would all like to be in the race.

Will Vassar be the only CART driver in Indy next week?

I think he's got a good chance when you got "Capt Roger" and "The Ovalmiester" in your pit. These guys know Indy.

helio is a good racer, but more than that- the Penske operation is better, He and Gil DeFerran are just benefitting from this great team, but what a start maybe 3 in a row?

Still, it'd be damn impressive if Helio can win 2 Indy 500s in 3 years.
