UPDATE See full story on our home page.

09/14/12 Marco Andretti won his fist pole in a long time for tomorrow night's MavTV 500 at Auto Club Speedway. Ryan Briscoe was the only other driver to top 216 mph and will start second. Point leader Will Power will start third and his title contender Ryan Hunter-Reay struggled in 17th.

Marco was happy to be on pole.

"Yeah, thanks man. It means a lot. Just what we have been going through this year. Me in particular just been a very trying year for me and my career. Its good for the confidence, but we still got to get a race car under us tonight which I think we can do. But credit to the whole RC team, but the whole Andretti Autosport is just taking a huge step up this year. And let the best man win tomorrow."

(On his season) "Toughest part of my career. It is inspiring me to work harder outside the track and work harder in the car and still try to see what I need in the set up to get me quick, because I am not going to be quick on these tracks. And a little bit of leading luck will help."
