DENVER, Aug. 30 (UPI) -- Heavy rain late in Saturday's final qualifying session helped Bruno Junqueira hold on to the pole at the Champ Car World Series Grand Prix.

Junqueira never took the 1.647-mile street course Saturday but will start from the front here for the second year in a row.

Junqueira, who has failed to register a point in the last two races, posted a top speed of 96.507 miles per hour. Spain's Oriol Servia came closest to knocking him off the pole Saturday at 96.446 mph.

Canada's Paul Tracy, who has a 27-point lead over Junqueira atop the Champ Car series standings, spun during his qualifying attempt Saturday and will start ninth.

French rookie Sebastien Bourdais will start third, followed by Fernandez, Portuguese rookie Tiago Monteiro and Canada's Patrick Carpentier.
