For the second consecutive year, Will Power earned the PEAK Performance Pole Award for the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.
Power, driving the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske car, posted a quick lap of 1 minute, 01.9624 seconds (the quickest of the weekend) with 2:15 left in the 10-minute Firestone Fast Six shootout for his 11th IZOD IndyCar Series pole. He set a series record last season with eight.
Four teams are represented on the first three rows for the 100-lap race on the 1.8-mile, 14-turn circuit with the scenic Tampa Bay in the background.

I wonder if the whole "Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg" makes a Honda engine mandatory. I know they make good engines but where is the competition if they are all the same?
