LONG POND, Pa. -- After the last car sped past the finish line at Pocono Raceway, Mikhail Aleshin raised his arms in triumph.Fastest in morning practice on the tricky 2.5-mile triangular track, Aleshin was fastest in qualifying to win the IndyCar pole on Saturday. He turned a fast lap of 220.454 mph in his No. 7 Honda to edge Josef Newgarden for the top spot.Its the first career pole for the Russian, who drives for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports.I had two good laps. I knew I couldnt do better, Aleshin said. I just kept it flat. Obviously, it worked this time. I just knew that we couldnt do any better. I was just happy for the team. From the first lap, the car was just at the edge of what we needed.Its the third time this season Newgarden has qualified second. He was on the front row at the Indy 500 and at Iowa, just missing the top spot Saturday with a lap of 220.195 mph.Hes pretty daring. Not a lot spooks him, Newgarden said of Aleshin. He gets better and better the more seat time he has. I think youre seeing that.Takuma Sato qualified third, followed by Helio Castroneves, Carlos Munoz, Aleshins teammate James Hinchcliffe, Alexander Rossi, Will Power, Tony Kanaan and Ed Carpenter.Points leader Simon Pagenaud qualified 14th in windy conditions. Defending race winner Ryan Hunter-Reay crashed in morning practice and did not qualify.Aleshin led 33 laps at Mid-Ohio in the previous race but was caught up in a late pit road crash with Newgarden and finished 17th.Still, its a team on the rise. He finished fifth at Iowa and was sixth at Toronto in July.We have some new team members. We needed some work together, Aleshin said. We came to this point and now we can see progress in the last couple of races. I hope this pole position is not all that we can show you.For Newgarden, it was a step in the right direction. Hes fourth in points behind the Penske trio of Pagenaud, Power and Castroneves.The pressure is not on us, Newgarden said. The pressure is on Simon and Will. Theyre in a tougher spot. We can afford to get a little more aggressive than those guys. I feel pretty cool going into these races.Pocono Raceway painted the letters JW on the track at the finish line and Union Jacks flew at half-staff in honor of Englishman Justin Wilson, who died a year ago after being struck by debris in the closing laps of the IndyCar race here.Other things to note in qualifying at Pocono:PRACTICE WOESHunter-Reay crashed early in the first practice. His No. 28 broke free in Turn 1, spun around and slammed the outside wall hard before caroming back across the track and coming to rest along the inside wall. Hunter-Reay wasnt injured, but the left front of the Honda was demolished, forcing his Andretti Autosport team to switch to a backup car.The rear all of a sudden just snapped, said Hunter-Reay, who won this race a year ago. Its a setback. This is really unfortunate that we have to reset. We have a lot of oval wins in that car. Well have to deal with it.Later in the morning practice, Charlie Kimballs No. 83 also slammed into the same wall, his steering wheel flying out of the cockpit onto the track as the Chevrolet bounced along the wall and rolled to a stop, its left side severely damaged.Late in the session, Juan Pablo Montoya also crashed, hitting the wall coming out of Turn 2. IndyCar halted the session with just under five minutes left on the clock.TRIBUTE DRIVERSDale Coyne Racing announced earlier in the week that Conor Daly would drive the No. 88 in Sundays race to honor 27-year-old open-wheel driver Bryan Clauson, who was killed two weeks ago at a Kansas race. DCR also announced that Pippa Mann would drive the No. 19, and her helmet sported a logo in Clausons honor.Daly qualified 20th in his first appearance at Pocono and Mann will start 21st.Mann was initially all smiles afterward, then was overcome with emotion as she thought about Clauson and Wilson, a former teammate.Its probably the hardest race Ive ever done, she said after a pause to collect her thoughts, tears welling in her eyes. Im very grateful to be here.SMILING SATOTakuma Sato couldnt stop smiling after his best qualifying effort of the season. His fourth at Texas and eighth at Long Beach are his only other top-10 starts this season.It means a lot, said Sato, whose AJ Foyt Racing Honda is sponsored by ABC Supply, also the sponsor for Sundays race. Last year we were very strong in the race. Hopefully, this qualifying performance gives us another competitive race tomorrow.Foyt won a record four IndyCar races at Pocono in his heyday.A.J. was very happy. He had a big smile, Sato said. Hopefully, we can keep him smiling tomorrow.---AP Auto Racing Website: www.racing.ap.org---Follow Kekis on Twitter: www.twitter.com/Greek1947 Grey Air Max 2018 . -- The boos poured down on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots at the end of a horrible first half.

Glamorgan 23 for 0 trail Northants 269 (Duckett 80, Newton 78, Carlson 5-28) by 246 runsScorecard Kiran Carlson took 5 for 28 on his first-class debut to help bowl Northamptonshire out for 269 on the opening day at Wantage Road. It was a remarkable introduction for the 18-year-old offspinner from Cardiff.Flighting the ball well and enjoying help from a dry, used wicket, Carlson - playing only due to Craig Meschedes back injury - tore through the Northants lower order. The home side collapsed in the afternoon, losing 9 for 84, although it may yet prove a heathy total.Carlsons first wicket came as a a great relief for Glamorgan with the final ball before lunch. He broke an opening stand of 140 with a full delivery that beat Ben Ducketts sweep and took out leg stump. He returned to pick up a second wicket in the over before tea, a delivery that spun in to hit the off stump of Steven Crook.After tea, a similar delivery bowled Rory Kleinveldt and he then induced David Murphy and Graeme White into driving to Graham Wagg at short extra-cover to complete an extraordinary debut.Carlson finished off what was an impressive comeback from Glamorgan. The home side were in a commanding position at lunch, 140 for 1, but as some heavier cloud rolled in and the breeze picked up, batting became less straigghtforward.dddddddddddd Glamorgan, to their credit, also bowled with far more discipline and took 5 for 45 in the second session.It was Wagg who made the breakthrough in the afternoon, shaping a delivery back into the right-handed Rob Newton just enough to take an inside edge into the stumps - Newton gone for 78. Rob Keogh followed in identical fashion for just 5, with Timm van der Gugten the successful bowler.In between those dismissals, Alex Wakely edged David Lloyds medium pace to slip and when Saif Zaib was splendidly caught by Jacques Rudolph running back from mid-on as Zaib looked to hit Owen Morgan down the ground, Northants ambitions of a large first-innings total were checked.It was quite a turnaround from the morning session, when Duckett went past fifty for the sixth time this year in the County Championship, from 65 balls. Among his eight fours featured the odd moment of fortune - an early drive wide of the slip cordon and a top-edged cut over second slip - and his six was a miscued pull that flew over long leg.Ducketts opening partner Newton made his own half-century in 81 balls but his afternoon dismissal was the beginning of Northants collapse.
