That didn’t last long! Right from go the No. 06 car started smoking and then stopped on the front straight with a fire. Oil was left all over. In the end qualifying was stopped and will be based off of the combined practice times.
With that said, it leaves Brandon Davis / Ford Mustang Cobra on pole. Does that suck or what! To follow that up, Randy Pobst / Porsche 911 GT3 put the K-Pax Racing into 2nd! Michael Galati, in his K-Pax Porsche took 7th.
The SPEED Touring Car race will go green at 11:05 a.m. (EDT) tomorrow, March 14.
The SPEED GT race will go green at 4:40 p.m. (EDT) tomorrow.

We don’t have official word from STaSIS but it doesn’t look like they are competing in the Touring Class this year. Qualifying for TC has finished up with Seth Thomas taking his first pole. No. 43 Kleinubing will start second. No. 44 Wittmer and No. 42 Cunningham will complete the second row on the grid.
Getting under way shortly will be the GT class. There is a good number of Porsche’s this year, so we will be keeping an eye on them to dominate!
