Meyer Shank Racing’s Felix Rosenqvist in the No.60 Bon Jovi Radio Honda was delighted after taking the pole for the opening Heat race at the Thermal Club on Sunday.

The Swede who started the season-opening Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg presented by RP Funding two weeks ago from the front row set a fastest time of 01:38.5831s and speaking following the action he commented saying:

 “We tried to stay cool after a tough morning session, we took a deep breath and worked on the problem. But the team did a great job getting ready and we ended up with another great car. The test sessions have been great for us as a team this weekend. We’re jelling, we are figuring out what we need to do to be fast and I feel good. It’s an angry pack to be ahead of (for tomorrow’s heat race), but if we can get away clean at the start, we should be OK because the (tire) degradation isn’t too bad. But the guys are going to be coming at us hard.

Tom Blomqvist in the No.66 AutoNation Siriux XM Honda had a great session as he will roll off from fifth place in the second heat race on Sunday. Speaking following the action, he commented saying:

“I’m really happy. I am slowly, but surely going in the right direction. Yesterday was really difficult for me, but we made really good steps overnight with the car. I’m just focusing on getting more comfortable every lap and learning what I need from the car to go fast.”
