Markus Niemela starting from second row in Laguna Seca

Markus Niemela finishes the last qualifying of the Cooper Tires presents the Atlantic series Powered by Mazda with a fourth place. Niemela was battling for P3 with Jonathan Bomarito until the last lap and ended up only half a tenth behind Bomarito. Atlantic-series leader Simona De Silvestro finished fifth after Niemela.

"In the beginning I had a flat tyre and we had to put new tires before others. I could have gone 0.2 or 0.3 seconds faster but I`m happy we got in the mix with two big teams. This is ok and the race tomorrow should be interesting, " says Niemela after the qualifying.

Niemela will be mixing it up as he starts in the middle of the three drives chacing the championship tomorrow.
