Frisselle drove an exceptional race on Saturday, as the young rookie made his way through the tight street course from P9 to battle for P2 with Nelson Phillippe and Scott Porier. "I am extremely pleased with my performance today," Frisselle stated. "The car was set up perfectly, and I just drove it to the limit. Unfortunately, one of our front wings broke which prevented me from making the final charge to claim a podium finish. I struggled on the last few laps to hang on to a top five, and was therefore very pleased with my P5 finish. Overall, it was a great race!"
