Hawksworth wins pole for Sunday's Indy Lights race

Jack Hawksworth won the pole Saturday for Sunday’s Indy Lights race in the Grand Prix of Baltimore.  

Hawksworth, who had the top practice run in both sessions on Friday, finished ahead of Indy Lights points leader Carlos Munoz of Colombia and Gabby Chavez, also of Colombia, in the qualifying.

The 22-year-old Englishman has won two races this season, both on street courses. His most recent win came at Toronto after earning the pole there as well. Hawksworth’s first victory this year came in the season-opener in St. Petersburg, Fla.

“It’s so important here [to be on the pole], but the race isn’t done yet,” Hawksworth said right after qualifying. “It feels good, it feels awesome.”
