    Question Meaning of "Pole-man"

    Does the pole-man mean the man who always earns the victory?

    Where did you hear it used? If it was racing, it means starting in the best position; in Formula 1, the pole position is the car that starts the race at the front and in horse racing, where the term is from, it is starting on the inside.

    Thank you for your help. But how can the cars start the race at the front position? By random or that cars have to make the good score in previous race? (I heard it from motorcar magazine)
    Thanks again
