The streets of Long Beach one of the most famous circuits of the United States, as usual to get pole, separated into two groups in the first group (odd) pilots qualified for the top12 were: Franchitti, Conway, Sato, Kanaan, Viso, Rahal while the second group (pair) have been Power, Hinchcliffe, Reay, Kimball, Castroneves, Andretti.
In the first group have fallen many favorites, many fast drivers during the first 3 races and this circuit have been forced to fight each other in the first round, which has noticed the times have become only half official record second circuit. People like Bourdais, Wilson, Pagenaud (fastest in practice 3) or the rokkie Vautier
In 2nd group Oriol Servia had an accident last 1 minute to go so many lap pilots have been handicapped and have stayed out off the top12 and Dixon as well set to have been penalized in the first curve and now they will start in the last line of the race.
In the top 12 were eliminated Hinchcliffe, Kanaan, Kimball, Viso, Rahal and Hindebrand.
