Ducati rider Chaz Davies grabbed his first World Superbikes pole, with the fastest time in United States on Saturday.

The Brit's time of one minute, 22.101 seconds kept him ahead of the field as team-mate Davide Giugliano (+0.196secs) was his closest rival.

Jordi Torres (Aprilia) makes up the rest of the front row.

Championship leader Jonathan Rea will start fifth as his Kawasaki team-mate Tom Sykes was faster, while Leon Haslam (Aprilia) was sixth quickest.

Davies has one win to his name this season to be fourth in the championship, while he has finished in the top four in the past six races.
