Practice Session
Position Finished: 4th
Fastest Lap Time: 01:28.257

Frisselle raced in Round 7 of the 2003 Barber Dodge Pro Series this past weekend, held at Exhibition Place Circuit in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Friday's practice session was held in wet conditions, presenting a challenging situation for the young rookie. "Due to the wet conditions, I was not able to get much of a feel for what the track will be like in the dry or the opportunity to work on car set-up," Frisselle stated. Despite the slick conditions, Frisselle executed an impressive session, finishing in P4

Qualifying Session 1
Position Qualified: 7th
Fastest Lap Time: 01:28.536

Friday afternoon's qualifying session was also held in wet conditions, making car control a crucial factor for the young rookie. Frisselle did not push the limits as hard as he would have liked, due to the slick conditions on the challenging street circuit. Unfortunately for the young rookie, who went out with a wet set-up, the track began to dry out at the end of the session. "I was hoping to execute my fastest laps toward the end of the session," Frisselle stated, "but due to our rain set-up and the changing track conditions, I was not able to achieve the lap times I had hoped for. Hopefully we will have a better session tomorrow."

Qualifying Session 2
Position Qualified: 9th
Fastest Lap Time: 01:12.586

The second qualifying session was the first opportunity Frisselle had to test the track on slick tires, and his performance was strong. The young rookie planned to execute his fastest times at the end of the session, but once again faced challenges that prevented him from doing so. Rain rolled in at the end of the session, slowing all drivers, and Frisselle got caught up in lap traffic. "I felt really good the entire session, and was confident that I would be able to put in my fastest lap times at the session's end," commented Frisselle. "Unfortunately, I was held up by lap traffic and the changing track conditions, which resulted in a disappointing P9 finish. I look forward to improving upon this position in the race tomorrow!"

Frisselle fell back several positions at the start of the race, after nearly being taken out by the chaotic beginning on this challenging circuit. From there, the young rookie drove an exceptional race, climbing up through the field and gaining several positions to finish strong in P5. The young rookie from Hawaii was met with several instances of car contact, but due to hard racing and attrition, he was able to battle his way through the field. "I am very pleased with my performance in the race today," the young rookie from Hawaii stated. "I am definitely happy with a top five finish, and I feel confident that with a stronger qualifying performance, I will be able to challenge for a podium in Vancouver."
