BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Jon Fogarty extended his Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series record to 25 poles in Friday's Porsche 250 qualifying at Barber Motorsports Park.
For the second straight event this season, Fogarty waited until the final minute of the 15-minute Daytona Prototype session before clinching the pole. His No. 99 Corvette DP was clocked in a track-record lap of 104.878 mph (1 minute, 18.949 seconds).
It was Fogarty's third pole at Barber, and fourth for Gainsco/Bob Stallings Racing at the circuit. He was to co-drive in Friday's two-hour event with Alex Gurney.
