Justin qualifies 6th for Grand Prix of Road America

After a dry practice session on Saturday morning the rain returned to Road America, affecting qualifying for the second day in a row. However, unlike first qualifying, the track never dried out and lap times were about ten seconds off Friday's pace.

Justin was 2nd fastest in the session with a lap of 2.06.994s, but Sebastien Bourdais' quicker lap of 2.06.460s guaranteed him a front row slot for Sunday alongside polesitter Dan Clarke (CTE-HVM). With the rest of the grid determined by Friday's faster qualifying times, Justin will start from 6th alongside Forsythe driver and former team-mate A.J. Allmendinger. The two are currently tied on points for 2nd in the driver championship.

"The track was tricky today", commented Justin. "During the first stint we had a little bit of oversteer. We fixed it for the second stint, but unfortunately by then the track was a lot slower. That's how it is in wet conditions - it's a bit of a lottery. But if the track is dry for the race, I like our chances. The car is pretty good and it's fairly well balanced. The CDW team and I are looking forward to a good race tomorrow."
