K-PAX Racing's Volvo S60s Qualify First and Third For Second Race at VIR

Alton, VA (September 12, 2010) - K-PAX Racing's Volvo S60s will start from the first and third positions on the grid for Sunday's race at the Race Keeper World Challenge VIR Grand Prix presented by MTM Special Ops Watch at Virginia International Raceway.

Andy Pilgrim will start from the pole position, after pacing the GT field with a best time of 1:56.086 (101.408 mph), in the number 8 K-PAX Racing Volvo S60. Of note, Andy captured the pole in a car from last year after the team elected to forego making a transmission change in the current car.

"The set-up, it's similar, obviously. But the unknown is going to be how the race set-up is because we didn't do any testing. We obviously ran a good lap to get pole, but we don't know what it is for the race set-up," Andy said of the switch.

"We needed that manufacturer's point and we got that, now how is it going to be in the race? We don't know," he said.

Andy's teammate Randy Pobst, put in a quick lap of 1:56.370 (101.160) in the number 6 Volvo, to secure the third spot on the grid. Kuno Wittmer will start second in a Dodge Viper after recording a best time of 1:56.206 (101.303).

"The K-Pax Volvo ran perfectly, spot on. We're third, an excellent position to start the race. I'm lined up behind my team mate Andy Pilgrim and I congratulate him for a great job in getting the pole. I think we're going to be K-Pax Volvo express today, 1-2 all the way. That's what I'm looking for," Randy said.
