The starting lineup for Sunday’s IndyCar race, the Honda Indy Toronto, is set following Saturday afternoon’s qualifying session. Who is on pole?

The Honda Indy Toronto is the first of five IndyCar races in an upcoming 22-day span, and it is scheduled to take place on the streets of Toronto, Ontario tomorrow afternoon.

The qualifying session for this 85-lap race around the 11-turn, 1.786-mile (2.874-kilometer) temporary street circuit at Exhibition Place took place on Saturday afternoon, and it was Andretti Autosport’s Colton Herta who took the pole position.

Herta took the pole position for this race by recording a top lap time of 59.2698 seconds (108.480 miles per hour) in the third and final round of qualifying, the Firestone Fast Six, behind the wheel of his #26 Honda.

This pole position is the ninth of Herta’s career, and it is his second of the season, making him the first driver to take two pole positions through the season’s first 10 races.

Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon is set to start alongside Herta on the front row in second place behind the wheel of his #9 Honda. This second place qualifying effort is tied for his highest non-Indy 500 qualifying effort since he took the pole position for the race at Watkins Glen International in September 2016.

Just 25 cars, not the usual 26 that entered the season as full-time entries, are set to compete in tomorrow’s race, as there was one notable omission from the entry list as a result of ongoing sponsorship issues.

Points leader Marcus Ericsson of Chip Ganassi Racing is set to start in ninth place behind the wheel of his #8 Honda.

Teammate Alex Palou is still competing behind the wheel of his #10 Honda this weekend, despite the drama surrounding his contract status and the rumor that he might be replaced by Tony Kanaan. He is set to start in 24th place after a mechanical failure during the opening round of qualifying.

Here is the full starting lineup for the 17-race 2022 IndyCar season’s 10th race.
