Bruno Junqueira – No.09 RSR Racing – Pole in Prototype Challenge
I am very happy to be on the pole. The track is very slippery so I was able to have a car that was good in some parts of the track and not in others. I was able to get a really good lap, push 100% and was surprised by the big gap over P2. The race is different; it’s a long twelve hour race, but I am very happy with the RSR Racing team and the LinospressoUSA.com car.”
Colin Braun – No.54 CORE Autosport – Fourth in PC
“We had a little bit different racetrack with the Continental Challenge race happening right before we qualified. We sort of saw a racetrack that I think we hadn’t really seen all weekend, and I don’t think we’ll see it again really. It was a little bit indicative of a green racetrack. The CORE Autosport guys have been working their butts off all week. Hopefully it goes back to what it was when we’ve been quick all week and it’s in good shape for tomorrow.
“The race is going to be about staying out of trouble. I don’t think ultimate lap time is going to play much of an effect in the race. I think it’s going to be about all three or four drivers staying clean, being smart, being patient and getting through traffic—all the things that it takes to be good in an endurance race and a lot less about raw speed.”
Dane Cameron – No.94 Turner Motorsport BMW Z4 – Pole in GT Daytona
“It’s an amazing pole for an amazing event,” Cameron said. “I just glanced at the time sheets and the top six or seven cars are within a second of each other. It shows you won’t be able to give up any time on the track or the pit lane.”
