"Your team feels confident, you feel confident", Power said. Dixon has been very consistent this year. "But if we've gone in the wrong direction, which is easy to do when the field is this competitive, we can fall back on that other set up that was reliable from previous year".

It's the first pole this season and in this race for the 33-year-old Pagenaud.

Newgarden's win today also tightened the season championship chase after 12 of 17 races.

His best starting position on the streets surrounding Exhibition Place before this year was second.

"That is twice I have had good calls and got into the pits at the right time", Newgarden said. "Being able to put a flawless lap together in Toronto is very unusual because it's a very tough track". I'm very proud of Honda for the effort they've made.

Gutiérrez is filling in for the injured Sébastien Bourdais as he continues to recover from multiple fractures of the pelvis and right hip sustained in a crash during Indianapolis 500 qualifications on May 20.

Hinchcliffe is looking for a repeat - or better - of previous year, when he started a career-best sixth here and ended up third.

The rookie IndyCar driver crashed during the first round of qualifying Saturday and began experiencing concussion-like symptoms afterwards. Marco Andretti was fourth, 14 seconds behind Hinchcliffe. "You're just trying to save your life and give it everything you've got". No less than four drivers ended up hitting the wall in Turn 11 previous year, so it seems the concerns weren't completely unfounded. "Nice that the last two years it's kind of changed. Because there are many other days we should have won the race".

Notes: Sebastien Saavedra will replace Mikhail Aleshin in the Schmidt Peterson Motorsports No. 7 auto.

"The joke was we're either going to have a reason to celebrate or commiserate", Hinchcliffe said, laughing.

"It's just hard work. A lot of times we've been quick here, just had the worst luck ever".

Team Penske's Josef Newgarden became the third driver to win more than one race through 12 IndyCar races so far this season with his victory in the Honda Indy Toronto in the 11-turn, 1.786-mile temporary street circuit in Toronto, Ontario.

Gutierrez hit the wall on the straightaway to the finish line near the end of the first round. His auto caught fire but the former Formula One driver escaped unscathed.

Aleshin is in attendance with the team this weekend in Toronto.

Qualifying for the race on Monday (NZT) takes place on Sunday.
