Perera wins Indy Lights pole
Franck Perera
Franck Perera, making his second Firestone Indy Lights starts and first on a road course, will start from the pole position for the first of two same-day races at Watkins Glen International.

Perera, driving the No. 55 Guthrie Racing car, posted a quick lap of 1 minute, 37.8651 seconds (123.967 mph) during a 30-minute session to determine the SWE Pole Award winner.

Raphael Matos (1:38.1211; 123.643) will join Perera on the front row.  These two drivers finished 1st (Matos) and 2nd (Perera) in last year's Champ Car Atlantic Series and they are back at it against each other this year but in a series with much more horsepower. 

Tomorrow they will run a doubleheader.
