Marc Marquez claimed an eighth pole of the season with another display of dominance in qualifying for the Indianapolis Grand Prix.
The reigning world champion, who has won all nine races of this season so far, is on course for a perfect 10 after claiming top spot on the grid ahead of Ducati's Andrea Dovizioso.
Marquez's time of one minute 31.619 seconds came on his sixth lap on Saturday, and gave the Repsol Honda man a cushion of 0.225secs over Dovizioso.
The Spaniard won at Indianapolis last year, and is well placed to repeat that feat on Sunday.
Dani Pedrosa, Marquez's team-mate and closest challenger in the riders' standings, endured a nightmare qualifying session and had to settle for eighth place on the grid after finishing 0.712secs adrift of the leader.
Dovizioso moved himself onto the front row on the sixth of his eight laps, while Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo completed the front three.
NGM Forward Racing's Aleix Espargaro continued his good form by claiming fourth ahead of Valentino Rossi.
Scott Redding (GO&FUN Honda Gresini) and Cal Crutchlow (Ducati), who qualified from the first session on Saturday, both finished just outside the top 10 in the final two positions of second qualifying.
Meanwhile, Yamaha Tech 3's Bradley Smith will hope his crash late in the session will not affect his performance in Sunday's race.
The Briton flipped his bike at turn two but was able to walk away from the incident.
