Aug. 27, 2010

Jon Fogarty claimed the GRAND-AM Rolex Series DP pole for the third time in the four-year history of the Montreal 200 on Friday.

MONTREAL – Jon Fogarty claimed the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series Daytona Prototype pole for the third time in the four-year history of the Montreal 200 on Friday, turning a track qualifying record lap of 106.556 mph at the 2.709-mile Circuit Gilles Villeneuve road course, in the No. 99 GAINSCO Chevrolet/Riley.

Fogarty, who set the previous record last season, and co-driver Alex Gurney – the reigning GRAND-AM Rolex Series champions in the DP class – will lead a 24-car field to the green flag at 2:15 p.m. ET Saturday.

Memo Rojas qualified second Friday in the No. 01 TELMEX BMW/Riley. Rojas and co-driver Scott Pruett lead the DP points and could clinch the series championship Saturday if they come out of the race with at least a 35-point lead over the second-place team. They come into the weekend with a 26-point (302-276) lead.

Also Friday, the production-based GT class pole was won by Boris Said, who turned a lap of 98.610 mph in a Chevrolet Corvette. It marked Said’s first pole position since he earned the top spot in 2004 at another Quebec track, Circuit Mont-Tremblant, about 90 miles from Montreal.
