2 - Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari)
3 - Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes)
Vettel leads all-Ferrari front row in Russia
  Top-3 withing 0.095sec.

Until this year Mercedes has owned the Sochi circuit in Russia, but this year Ferrari appears to have their number. Sebastian Vettel turned a lap of 1m33.194s to just beat his Ferrari teammate for pole for Sunday's Russian GP by 0.059s. Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas continued his dominance over Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton to qualify third at 1m33.289s while Hamilton could not get within a 1/2-sec. of Vettel. Daniel Ricciardo rounded out the top-5 for Red Bull.

  Top-3 drivers

Drivers:
1st - Helio Castroneves
2nd - Will Power
3rd - JR Hildebrand

Castroneves runs almost 195-mph to win pole at Phoenix
  Leads Chevy 1-2-3-4-5

Turning a lap of 195 mph on a short 1-mile oval would be a monumental achievement. Think about that for a moment. The pole for the Daytona 500 - a 2.5-mile superspeedway - was 192.8 mph. Well Helio Castroneves did just that, turning a lap a tick under 195 mph to win the pole for the Desert Diamond West Valley Phoenix GP IndyCar race at the 1-mile Phoenix International Raceway in his Penske Chevy. His teammate Will Power will start on the outside of row 1.

Kenseth wins pole at Richmond
  Blaney to start 2nd
Matt Kenseth led all drivers at Richmond International Raceway in Friday evening's qualifying at 121.076 mph in his No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota to capture the Coors Light Pole for Sunday's Toyota Owners 400. This marks his first pole win of 2017. It is Kenseth's second career pole at Richmond, his previous top starting spot coming in 2013. Kenseth has won twice at the Virginia track, in 2002 and 2015. Ryan Blaney will be joining Kenseth on the front row after turning a lap at 120.854 mph in his No. 21 Wood Brothers Racing Ford.

Once again Valtteri Bottas was faster than his Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton 1m34.790s to 1m34.829s while Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo were 5th and 5th respectively for Red Bull.
