He now gets to attempt the road course in the #14 vehicle that Tony Stewart wheeled to victory here previous year. I think I ran out of gas in my first or second year on the last lap. He won his first pole in 1999 at the Milwaukee Mile. Castroneves broke a tie for third on the career poles list with Bobby Unser. "Sorry it's a bad habit", said Castroneves, clearing his throat. It's a fun place and our race cars are always fast. "You know how change is". "We'll see how it goes tomorrow".

If it seems everything is going right for Larson, he also led final practice Friday.

Rookie William Byron grabbed the lead with just over 20 laps and won the NASCAR Xfinity race at Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa.

Christopher Bell led 152 laps in just his second career start in the series before a late wreck cost relegated him to 16th. However, Busch is confident his auto is fast enough for the race, as he has often been this year with almost 800 laps led and four top-three finishes.

Larson was able overcome the mistake by getting his No. 42 Energizer Chevrolet back on course and relying on other areas of the track in which he shaved time off.

Raikkonen qualified third ahead of his Ferrari teammate Sebastian Vettel, the championship leader.

It's NASCAR's turn to turn right as well as left.
