Junqueira nabs CART pole



The Associated Press

ELKHART LAKE, Wis. - Bruno Junqueira earned his second straight pole at Road America on Saturday as he looks for his first race victory of the season.

Junqueira won the second qualifying round ahead of today's Mario Andretti Grand Prix with a lap time of 1 minute, 43:703 seconds. His Newman/Haas Racing teammate, rookie Sebastien Bourdais, qualified second in 1:44.242.

Junqueira moved 18 points behind Paul Tracy, who fell to sixth place Saturday after running third in Friday's early qualifying.

FORMULA ONE: Juan Pablo Montoya gained his first pole position of the season, leading a 1-2 finish for Williams-BMW in qualifying for the German Grand Prix. Montoya timed 1:15.167 on the 2.84-mile Hockenheimring circuit, ahead of teammate Ralf Schumacher.

Schumacher's brother, five-time world champion Michael, was just sixth in his Ferrari. He has not won a pole since May's Austrian GP but still leads the driver's standings.

It's Montoya's 11th career pole and first since September.
