He turned a best-lap speed of 97.792 miles per hour. Hildebrand's teammate, Sebastian Saavedra, driver of the #27 AFS/AGR car, will start from the pole. Saavedra's best-lap speed was 97.098 miles per hour.

Coverage of the Toronto 100 can be seen on Versus on Monday, July 12, starting at 11 p.m. (EDT).

J.R. Hildebrand #26 AFS/AGR driver:
"The #26 car was good but we never really got the handle of which direction we needed to go in. We are definitely faster than starting sixth on the grid, but we just got held up in traffic. Hopefully we can do what we did last weekend in Watkins Glen and make up the positions during the race."

Sebastian Saavedra #27 AFS/AGR driver:
"I'm very happy about getting the pole position today. The AFS/AGR guys worked so hard and we found the perfect setup for this particular track. It's very bumpy and slippery but I think the car handled it very well. I am looking forward to the race tomorrow."
