Is it satisfying to win the pole like this? "It's very satisfying. I was extremely happy about this pole. It's a tough track to get a pole. We were the quickest in the first session, and we were pretty quick in the second session, as well. We felt we had a pretty good chance if we qualified. For some reason, knowing how difficult it is, it's good to walk away with the pole." (About starting next to Danica Patrick): "At least I know the photographers will be in my area. She's very sensible. I think she's proved in the last three races what a good race driver she is. A lot of people in her situation would be bold and overdrive the car, and she hasn't. She has a lot of experience and for a really tough track, she's done a good job with the second-quickest time."
