Spain's Marc Marquez has won his second straight Indianapolis Grand Prix pole.

The defending race champ completed Indy's 2.591-mile, 16-turn reconfigured road course in 1 minute, 31.619 seconds on Saturday. Marquez has won eight of 10 poles this season, and if the 21-year-old phenom wins Sunday's race, he will be the youngest MotoGP rider in history to 10 straight wins. He would also be the first back-to-back MotoGP winner at Indy.

Marquez held on despite a late challenge from Italy's Andrea Dovizioso, who was second at 1:31.844, after breaking the track's speed trap record during Saturday morning's practice session. Dovizioso was clocked at 214.5 mph one day after another Spaniard, Alvaro Bautista, broke set the previous mark at 212.8.

Spain's Jorge Lorenzo qualified third in 1:31.869.
