Foyt's driver takes Indy pole

INDIANAPOLIS -- Crowd favorite A.J. Foyt drove his old roadster around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Saturday for fun. Then Billy Boat gave Foyt an even bigger thrill, taking the tentative Indianapolis 500 pole at a speed almost 100 mph faster than his boss. Foyt, a four-time winner of the world's richest and most prestigious auto race and now a full-time car owner, got the top two spots in the early qualifying for the May 24 race. His other driver, Sweden's Kenny Brack, relegated pole favorite Tony Stewart to the outside of the front row.
