Saavedra is the Sunoco Pole Award winner for tomorrow's Auto Club Speedway Foundation 100. He will also qualify for the MAVTV100 to race both Firestone Indy Lights and the IZOD IndyCar Series this weekend.

"It was great to have Carlos go ahead of us, he gave me great information that I used for my run, and that was it. We've had great cars, we tested here very early in the season and for sure, we built up good momentum. I am very excited about this pole, it's one more point that we have in the championship. For me, there is one more qualifying session to go."  

"For sure I want to win. We are racers, we want to win every race, right? I'm going to go out there and try to win this and finish the season on a high note. We've been doing an incredible job during the 2012 season, had couple of bad luck situations, but in the end that's racing. I'm very excited to put the No. 27 car up there and the complete support that the AFS Racing/Andretti  Autosport crew has given us has been amazing."
