Connor Mosack Earns Third Motul Pole of 2022 at Mid-Ohio, Sets New Track Record
June 25, 2022
Practice and qualifying are in the books for the Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli’s TA2 class at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Connor Mosack in the No. 28 High Point University/Nic Tailor/SLR-M1 Racecars Camaro had the fastest lap of the session with 1:24.373, earning him his third Motul Pole Award of the year and setting a new track record for TA2.
“Our High Point University/Nic Tailor Mustang has been really fast this weekend,” said Mosack. “We didn’t really get to show it at all during practice this morning. There was some oil on the track and we just kept getting caught out with black flags, so we didn’t get to really complete a lap. I was a little worried starting in the back of that second qualifying group; track position and making sure you get a clean track are so important. We had enough room for one lap and we were able to put it on the pole. I want to give a big thanks to my guys at Scott Lagasse Racing. They gave me a really fast car, and hopefully we can keep it together for the whole race tomorrow and turn one of these poles into a win.”
Thomas Merrill was second fastest in his BridgeHaul/HP Tuners/Cope Race Cars Ford Mustang with a lap time of 1:24.620, followed by points leader Rafa Matos in the No. 88 3Dimensional Services Group Mustang with a 1:24.657. Matos’ teammate and series newcomer Guy Cosmo was fourth in his No. 89 3Dimensional Services Group Mustang with a 1:24.828, and Brent Crews in the No. 70 Nitro Motorsports Mustang was fifth with a lap time of 1:24.927.
