ELKHART LAKE, Wis. -- Scott Pruett began his assault on the Road America speed charts Friday morning, by setting the fastest lap in first-round Trans-Am Series for the BFGoodrich Tires Cup practice at the 4.048-mile road course. In fact, Pruett's 2:08.362-minute lap in the No. 7 Jaguar R Performance XKR eclipsed the fast race lap record (2:08.379) set by Tommy Kendall in 1995.

"The car is great," said Pruett. "We were using the same setup that we used (to win) at Mosport and Infineon, and it worked great there. We expect to only make some minor changes before this afternoon's practice session and tomorrow's qualifying run."

Second fastest was Tomy Drissi, who turned in a 2:10.111-minute lap in the No. 5 Stuck on You Jaguar XKR. Rookie Bobby Sak was third quickest in the No. 10 Revolution Motorsports Chevrolet Corvette, ahead of Johnny Miller in the No. 64 Eaton Cutler-Hammer Jaguar XKR. Stu Hayner completed the top five in the No. 2 GMAC Commercial Finance/Trenton Forging Chevrolet Corvette.
