Farnbacher Loles qualifies 3rd and 5th for Salt Lake City Rolex GT Finale

The Grand Am Rolex GT series wraps up on Saturday with the Sunchaser 1000. The 7.5 hour race promises to be a battle between the top teams from Porsche, Pontiac and Mazda. Farnbacher Loles Racing heads into the race with Bryce Miller and Dirk Werner tied for the team Championship while Werner holds a five-point lead in the Driver's Championship. The Farnbacher Loles sister car is looking to finish the season on the podium as well.

In Friday's qualifying session, the two cars again took top five spots. Leh Keen turned a best lap of 2:55.466 to put the #85 Shoes For Crews/Recaro Porsche GT3 Cup in third on the grid while Bryce Miller's 2:56.562 in the #87 Marquis Jet/IPC/Elf Oils Porsche 997 GT3 Cup gave him the fifth starting spot, only .004 seconds out of fourth. Bryce's Porsche was suffering power steering problems throughout his qualifying run which made his lap times all the more impressive.

The driver line-up for the race at Miller Motorsports Park has Miller and Werner joined by Wolf Henzler, while Leh Keen shares driving duties with Dominik Farnbacher and Ian Baas. The race will be televised live on Speed TV.
