Marquez crashes before taking controversial pole in Austin

Valentino Rossi

But race stewards nearly immediately announced an investigation of a lap in which Marquez appeared to ride too slow and disrupt Vinales. As a result, the Spaniard has lost his sixth pole position at Circuit of The Americas and will start from fourth on the grid.

However, Iannone ran wide on the exit of the corner and allowed Marquez to pounce straight back, with the Honda rider immediately putting two seconds between himself and the rest of the field. Race officials have stripped Marc Marquez from pole position at the MotoGP Grand Prix of the Americas with a penalty for interfering with a qualifying lap by rival Maverick Vinales. "We'll try and remain fully concentrated".

Vinales abandoned the lap and gesticulated at Marquez after passing him and had to settle for second place, the champion's lap of two minutes 3.658 seconds enough to maintain his ideal qualifying record in Texas and give him a great chance of winning the race for a sixth time out of six on Sunday. Suzuki's Andrea Iannone of Italy will start third.

Genworth Financial, Inc. (GNW)
Finally, Ladenburg Thalmann Financial Services Inc. increased its position in Genworth Financial by 11.2% during the 3rd quarter. Keefe, Bruyette & Woods reiterated a "hold" rating on shares of Genworth Financial in a research report on Thursday, April 12th.

Andrea Iannone was third ahead of Johann Zarco, while Rossi will start in fifth spot and championship leader Cal Crutchlow could only qualify in seventh. And it was just as tight for sixth and the final spot on Row 2, as Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team) was only another 0.065 in arrears behind Rossi.

World championship leader and Argentina victor Cal Crutchlow is next in seventh ahead of 2017 title challenger Andrea Dovizioso, while a courageous Dani Pedrosa joins them on the third despite still battling pain from the wrist he broke in his Lap 1 crash a fortnight ago.

Pol Espargaro joined Petrucci in advancing from Q1, but could only manage P12 in the end behind Alex Rins on the second of the Suzuki GSX-RR's.
