IT'S TWO YEARS IN A ROW FOR TURNER M3 ON POLE

LIME ROCK PARK, CT - For the second year in a row, a Turner Motorsport M3 sits on the pole for the Koni Challenge race at Lime Rock Park. Don Salama and Bryan Ortiz will start from the top spot in the #97 BMW M3 sponsored by H&R Springs, Nova Derm, OCG, and GoToPuertoRico.com.

Don Salama is no stranger to the 1.5 mile, 7-turn Connecticut road course - racing here in the BMW Car Club series, World Challenge, and the Koni Challenge series. But it was his teammate Bryan Ortiz, in his first event at Lime Rock, who gave the home-town Turner team their second pole in as many seasons. His time of 58.663 was the fastest among the 35 cars entered for Monday's Koni Challenge GS race. It also broke the qualifying lap record, set in 2007 with Will Turner driving the same car.

Matt Alhadeff and Bill Auberlen in the #96 Motul Lubricants/H&R Springs BMW M3 will start the GS race from the 21st position.
