VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 26 (UPI) -- Canada's Paul Tracy took back the pole Saturday at the Champ Car World Series Molson Indy Vancouver.

Tracy captured the pole in emphatic fashion after he was bumped Friday for blocking during his qualifying run.

Tracy averaged 105.236 miles per hour in a Ford/Lola for his fourth pole this season and the 17th of his career. He completed his run with 11 minutes remaining in the session.

Countryman and teammate Patrick Carpentier brought out the red flag with eight minutes left after hitting the wall while exiting the last turn. By the time the track was cleared, only

four minutes were left - just enough for two laps.

Brazil's Bruno Junqueira, who is 14 points behind Tracy in the Champ Car standings, nearly retained the pole he inherited

Friday but ran out of time. He will start second after a speed of 104.988 mph.
