Going flag to flag for his third consecutive victory in the Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli, Francis Jr. in the No. 98 Frameless Shower Doors Ford Mustang padded his championship lead over Chris Dyson, collecting all points available for the weekend.
Appling the same strategy he’s utilized multiple times throughout the season, Ernie Francis Jr. parked his No. 98 Frameless Shower Doors Ford Mustang for most of the 15-minute session. Waiting for a gap in traffic, Francis Jr. went flat out, nearly taking pole position on the out lap. On his second lap, Francis edged out veteran driver Boris Said to claim his fourth pole of the season. After clocking a fast time of 1:45.201, the defending TA champion pitted after just three laps.
