TORONTO (AP) - Dario Franchitti has won the pole for the first of two weekend races through the streets of Toronto.

Franchitti is coming off his first podium finish of the year Sunday at Pocono and hoped to use some momentum at Toronto. But he had a small crash in the Friday morning practice session, and his Target Chip Ganassi crew had to hustle to repair is car in time for qualifying.

He responded with three flawless qualifying sessions to take the top starting spot in Saturday's race.

Sebastien Bourdais was second in his first appearance in the Fast Six this year. His previous best qualifying effort was seventh, and this is his first front row start since joining Dragon Racing before the 2012 season.

Will Power was third, followed by Tony Kanaan, James Jakes and Scott Dixon.
