Sebastian Saavedra won the first pole of his career Friday when Ryan Hunter-Reay was penalized for bringing out a session-ending red flag during qualifying at the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis.

“We definitely gave that one away,” Hunter-Reay said.

Hunter-Reay had just moved to the top of the Fast Six leaderboard when he spun exiting the final turn of his next lap. It looked as if the 2012 IndyCar champion may have hit a patch of water exiting Turn 14 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where showers changed track conditions for each of the four qualifying sessions.

Video: Massive Pileup Claims Several Top Contenders In Long Beach

Sunday’s IndyCar race on the streets of Long Beach was setting up to be an instant classic before a multi-car wreck eliminated several of the top contenders, including race leader Josef Newgarden, pole-sitter Ryan Hunter-Reay and James Hinchcliffe.

With 24 laps to go, Newgarden exited pit lane with the race lead ahead of Hunter-Reay and Hinchcliffe, but had colder tires than the two Andretti Autosport teammates. As they raced into Turn 4, Hunter-Reay made a bold move by trying to pass Newgarden on the inside, and it proved to be costly.
