Scheckter on Pole in Nashville

The best lap times from the two free practice sessions earlier in the day will instead be used to determine the starting line-up for the Nashville night race, which puts the Panther Racing driver at the top because of his time from the first session.

Danica Patrick will start alongside Scheckter, as she chases her first podium finish in the series.

Scheckter's teammate Buddy Lazier lines up third on the former Champions return to the series, ahead of the Andretti-Green racing pair of Dario Franchitti and Dan Wheldon.
