BOWMANVILLE, Ont. -- Kevin Lacroix set a blistering pace to claim the E3 Spark Plugs Pole Award Saturday in qualifying for the Can-Am 200 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

Lacroix's No.74 Bumper to Bumper/Total/Gates Dodge set a time of 1 minute, 22.810 seconds (106.900 mph) and will lead the field to green in Sunday's race.

Lacroix's fast time was three-tenths quicker than second place, and the Saint-Eustache, Quebec, driver narrowly missed the track record of 1:22.770 set by Alex Tagliani last fall.

Tagliani, who was fastest during practice, will start second after a qualifying lap of 1:23.166 (106.443). L.P Dumoulin will roll off third.

Gary Klutt and Alex Labbe will lineup fourth and fifth, respectively.

Defending race winner Andrew Ranger will start sixth. Anthony Simone, Kennington, Hathaway and NASCAR Camping Truck Series regular Christopher Bell round out the top 10.

The green flag of the Can-Am 200 will be Sunday at 1 p.m.
