MOWLEM GRABS LMPC POLE AT MONTEREY

MONTEREY, Calif. (May 21, 2010) -- Johnny Mowlem's magic touch at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca paced the LMP Challenge class at the American Le Mans Series Monterey presented by Patron as Mowlem put his PR1 Mathiasen Oreca-Chevrolet on the class pole Friday.

Mowlem's lap averaging 103.558 mph bested the field of six LMP Challenge cars and was the seventh-best speed overall in the field of 36 starters.

"The track fits me and the car was really set up very well," Mowlem said. "We knew this team has the potential to perform like this. I have a good feeling about tomorrow."

Mowlem, who has a win and six podium finishes at the track, will team with co-drivers Tom Papadopoulos and Ryan Lewis in the six-hour race Saturday.
