Sebastian Saavedra, Team AFS Racing / Andretti Autosport, No. 27

Sebastian Saavedra will start Sunday's Indy Lights race from the pole position. This is the fourth Indy Lights pole position for the 21-year-old native of Colombia.

"I am very happy that we were able to qualify on the pole for tomorrow's race. Thank you to my AFS Racing / Andretti Autosport team for all of their hard work. Coming into Barber, we knew it was important to do well in the qualifying session. The focus was doing a good job here and that is exactly what we did. Now it is time to focus on the big picture of having a consistent car and bringing it home in first place."

Carlos Muņoz, Team Dialy-Ser, No. 26

Carlos Mu ņoz qualified third for Sunday's Indy Lights race at Barber Motorsports Park. This is his second career start in the Indy Lights category.

"I am really happy with those results. It is important that we do well at the start and stay consistent throughout the race in order to get a podium finish. When the red flag came out at the end of qualifying, I wasn't able to go back out on new tires. I feel we would have been a little quicker, but we still did well. I am thankful for my Andretti Autosport team and all of their hard work and also happy for my teammate (Saavedra) for earning the pole."
