Montreal driver Alex Tagliani has claimed pole position for next Sunday's Indianopolis 500. He beat New Zealander Scott Dixon in Saturday's time trials.
The Chip Ganassi-backed Dixon ran out of fuel in the fourth lap. He won the Indy 500 from the pole in 2008.
Astonishingly, his teammate, defending champion Dario Franchitti suffered from the same problem. He'll start in ninth place.
Tagliani's team operates on a small budget, making it that much more exciting to see them beat out high-budget owners like Ganassi.
The first eight rows were filled by the 24 fastest cars in the four-lap qualifying round. The top nine qualifiers returned to the track on Sunday to determine where they would start in the front three rows.
