Scott Speed continued his fightback for a third consecutive Red Bull Global Rallycross crown by taking pole position for the first of two events in Atlantic City.

The 2016 event winner lapped the new course at Bader Field in 52.627, almost a second quicker than team mate Tanner Foust who claimed second place.

Olsbergs Honda’s Sebastian Eriksson was third fastest, ahead of Chris Atkinson and Mitchell deJong.

Cabot Bigham was a fine sixth fastest for Bryan Herta Rallysport. The team claimed second place in Red Bull GRC’s first visit to Atlantic City last year with Patrik Sandell.

Sandell was seventh fastest, with championship contender Steve Arpin, Oliver Eriksson, and Austin Dyne rounding out the field.
