The starting lineup for Sunday afternoon’s IndyCar race at Road America, the Sonsio Grand Prix, is set following Saturday’s qualifying session.

IndyCar is set for the fifth consecutive weekend of action this weekend at Road America, the host of the eighth of 17 races on the 2022 schedule.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway led things off four Saturdays ago with the road course race. The weekend after that, Indy 500 qualifying took place on the oval, and the 106th running of the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing” took place the following Sunday. Then last Sunday, Belle Isle hosted its 30th and final IndyCar race.

Following a season-high second place finish last Sunday afternoon, Andretti Autosport’s Alexander Rossi took the pole position for Sunday afternoon’s 55-lap race around the 14-turn, 4.048-mile (6.515-kilometer) natural terrain road course in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

The 2019 Road America race winner took the pole position by recording a top lap time of 104.8656 seconds (137.799 miles per hour) behind the wheel of his #27 Honda.

This pole position ends a 47-race pole position drought for Rossi, and he became the eighth different polesitter through eight races in 2022, something that hadn’t happened since the 1961 USAC Champ Car Series season. Rossi is currently on a 44-race win drought, as his last win came at Road America in June 2019.

Set to start alongside Rossi on the front row in second place behind the wheel of his #2 Chevrolet is Team Penske’s Josef Newgarden, the 2018 Road America race winner.

Here is the full starting lineup for the 2022 Sonsio Grand Prix at Road America.
