Acura Team Penske’s Dane Cameron will lead the field to the green for Saturday’s Petit LeMans IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship round nine at Road Atlanta after setting a time of 01:08.412s and starts the race just ahead of his team mate Ricky Taylor.
Speaking following qualifying, Taylor who shares his car with Juan Pablo Montoya and NTT IndyCar Series driver Simon Pagenaud commented saying:
We’re very pleased. “I was a little disappointed when we came here for the six-hour run a few weeks back. Usually we are pretty aggressive with our stuff for qualifying and I thought we did a really good job, but we missed a little bit. I told the engineers, ‘Let’s really put the thing on the limit this time and see.’ I’m happy with what we ended up with, happy to get pole after missing out here the last time we showed up and the last couple of years here at Petit.
Ricky Taylor is co driving his Acura Team Penske ARX-05 by Helio Castroneves and Andretti Autosport NTT IndyCar Series driver Alexander Rossi.
