Simon Pagenaud, who won the inaugural race in 2014, was second quick (1:10.8130) in the No. 22 DeVilbiss Team Penske Chevrolet and Scott Dixon was third (1:10.9055) in the No. 9 Target Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet.
Coletti, a Verizon IndyCar Series rookie, qualified a season-high 10th for the race.
Sebastien Bourdais was fourth quick in the session in the No. 11 Team Mistic E-Cigs-KVSH Racing Chevrolet and Juan Pablo Montoya was fifth in the No. 2 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet.
Reigning Verizon IndyCar Series champion Will Power earned the Verizon P1 Award on May 8 with a lap of 1 minute, 09.4886 seconds in the Firestone Fast Six qualifying segment. Power broke Pagenaud's year-old track lap record of 1:09.6716 set in the first segment of qualifying. Pagenaud went on the win the 82-lap race from the fourth starting position.
It was the third track record eclipsed with the new aerodynamic road/street and short oval bodywork packages supplied by Chevrolet and Honda this season.
It was Power's 38th career pole, which is sixth on the all-time Indy car list, and the 227th for Team Penske. A Team Penske driver has started from pole in each of the five races this season and eight in a row dating to Milwaukee last August.
Dixon qualified second, which will be an early advantage if the racing circuit is wet. The weather forecast calls for a 60 percent chance of late-afternoon rain.
"I think the race will be fast and furious here on the road course. I’m not sure about the weather holding up, but at the end of the day we’re on the front row and hopefully any trouble will happen behind us back in the pack if it’s wet," said Dixon, who has finished first and third in the past two races. "We’ve had a good run of late on the road and street courses and I hope that continues for the team.”
