The first qualifying session of the Atlantic Championship on the all new New Jersey Motorsports Park took place under sunny and dry conditions. After last night's torrential rain and the test sessions this morning the track had dried out. The best time set during the qualifying sessions will also be the track record as only the Grand Am series has raced here before professionaly and they set a time of 1.11.761 (AIM Autosport / Ford Riley) which is slightly slower than the Atlantic cars.

Junior Strous: "The car was realy fast. The whole package just worked very well. But I just did not get one clear lap. It felt like I was being held up by the slower team mates of the drivers in front of me. Then I had a spin towards the end of the session. I lost downforce as I was just to close to another car and nearly hit the wall. Lucky there is a second qualifying session tomorrow morning and the best time counts."

Dominick Muermans: "The balance of the car was very different from this morning. Track conditions realy changed due to the afternoon heat. The grip of the tyres was different, it just did not feel as good as it did this morning. I also had a little outing on the grass which did not help and a lot of time was lost due to the red flag period. Tomorrow should go better as the second qualifying session is early in the morning."
