Commenting on his 1:33.397 qualifying run Chip Herr said, "We had a good day; the STaSIS team put together a heck of a car. The new B7 chassis STaSIS Audi A4 really performed well. Hopefully, we can perform tomorrow as well. I sure am looking forward to starting in the front row." Last race at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg Herr made up four positions by turn one starting in 7th position with his patented standing start all- wheel drive launch.
