WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. & ...

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. – Terry Borcheller, driving the No. 56 Home Improvement/RRR Speedlap Saleen Mustang, scored his sixth T1 Class World Challenge pole for Saturday's 20-lap, 75.4-mile World Challenge race at Watkins Glen.

Borcheller, of Phoenix, Ariz., posted a top time of 2:03.486 (109.907 mph), while Peter Cunningham qualified second, followed by Bobby Archer, Neil Hannemann and Borcheller's teammate Ron Johnson.

"The car was absolutely perfect," said Borcheller. "The track condition was really good as well, and we went over a second faster than we had in practice. Qualifying was very busy, and it was hard to get a good lap. We were very fortunate to have found a break in the traffic and get in a clean lap."

In the T2 Class, Pierre Kleinubing, driving the No. 43 RealTime Racing/CompTech Acura Integra R, posted a top time of 2:12.182(102.676 mph) to claim his third class pole of the season.

Qualifying second quick in T2 was Kleinubing's teammate Michael Galati, followed by Lance Steward, Will Turner and Jeff McMillin.
