Yasukawa completes Hylton Motorsports front row in Milwaukee.

In just his second Atlantic event, Roger Yasukawa broke last years track record and qualified his car on the front row. Yasukawa narrowly missed the pole position that was set by his teammate Ryan Hunter-Reay. For the first time Atlantic history, the front row is dominated by Hylton Motorsports.

Roger Yasukawa, #9 Autobacs/u.s. print/Toyota/Swift Thursday Test: 2nd 25.403 146.250 Friday Morning Practice: 2nd 25.134 147.816 Friday Afternoon Practice: 3rd 25.218 147.323 Saturday Morning Practice: 1st 24.841 149.559 Qualifying: 2nd 24.882 149.313

Yasukawa on qualifying:
"It was a great session for us. Obviously I really wanted the pole and I was giving it my best, but I think we might have been just a little to conservative with the setup for qualifying. It is great to give Hylton Motorsports the front row; they have done an excellent job. We had a very good practice session this morning; we finally found the perfect balance. The track was much better than I had expected this afternoon and the car was very good. We have a long race ahead of us tomorrow and as long as it is a clean race, I think Ryan and I will be racing each other to the end."
