Frisselles to the front with Glycomax in Mexico City qualifying

(Mexico City, Mexico) 3 March 2006-- Brian Frisselle posted his career-best Rolex Sports Car Series presented by Crown Royal Special Reserve qualifying effort on Friday in the Synergy Racing Glycomax Porsche-Doran, setting a fast lap time of 1:23.139-seconds to take second on the grid for Saturday's race in Mexico City.

"I'm really happy to be up on the front row for tomorrow's race," said a smiling Frisselle. "The Glycomax car and the Porsche power were absolutely spot on, and I just have to thank Synergy Racing for giving me such a great car today."

Brian, who set his quick lap time early in the fifteen-minute qualifying session, was within .001 of second away from the pole-sitting time for much of the session, and was excited about the result after a tough run in practice on Thursday gave him a lot to think about overnight.

"I really struggled yesterday, but to come back and post such a strong time really boosts my confidence, because this car is really set up to go racing, not for a one-lap flyer, so we are pretty confident looking forward to tomorrows race."

Brian will be turning the car over to older brother Burt at the first opportune moment in Saturday's race, and Burt was naturally quite pleased with the effort his brother put in.

"This race is going to be all about track position because it can be hard to pass here, so he has done exactly what we needed so we are exactly where we want to be and I'm really proud of him and this Synergy Racing team," said Burt. "We have good power with the Porsche but we are still getting good mileage, so that is going to give us a lot of options tomorrow as far as race strategy."

Saturday's race will take the green flag at 3:15 PM local time, with the race being carried by Speed Channel starting at 8:00 PM ET on Saturday.
