The American beats Olivier Pla’s Acura DPi # 60 Meyer Shank Racing by 0.346 seconds. This is a new 100% Acura front row. In addition, Ricky Taylor becomes the record holder for pole positions in IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar.
Kevin Magnussen qualified the # 01 Cadillac DPi-VR of Chip Ganassi Racing in third place ahead of Pipo Derani on the # 31 Cadillac Action Express Racing and Harry Tincknell, winner of Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen.

The pole in LMP2 is the work of Ben Keating (Oreca 07 # 52 PR1 / Mathiasen), while Mateo Llarena dominated the LMP3 with his Ligier JS P320 # 38 Performance Tech Motorsports.

Cooper MacNeil (Porsche 911 RSR # 79 – WeatherTech) finished 3rd and in the middle of the GT3s after struggling in the dry conditions with the slicks.

He is 0.440 seconds ahead of the Lexus RC F GT3 # 12 of Vasser Sullivan Racing of Frankie Montecalvo and Richard Heistand in the # 39 Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo of CarBahn by Peregrine Racing .
