Race 1 – Qualifications
Not only was this a great result for Robb, but it was also helpful to his teammate Rasmus Lindh in the championship battle because it denied Kyle Kirkwood a bonus point for taking the pole. Kirkwood was hot on Robb’s pace and will finish second. Lindh will start 3rd.
Parker Thompson backed up his fast speed in practice with a 4th place qualifying performance, edging out teammate Jacob Abel.
Saturday will feature Qualification Session 2 along with the race at 7:10 Eastern.
