No.01 DP Qualifying Results: No.01 TELEMEX driver Memo Rojas took the driver's seat for the team's qualifying attempt this afternoon and posted a terrific fourth position starting grid spot. He narrowly missed putting his Lexus-Riley in a top-three position, getting held up by slower traffic in the field. Rojas, along with his Rolex DP Series points leading partner Scott Pruett, look to capitalize from their 2nd row outside starting spot tomorrow.

N0.19 DP QUALIFYING RESULTS: In his first qualifying attempt for CGRFS, Rob Finlay in the #19 Z-Line Designs/Mission Residential/Make-A-Wish Foundation Lexus-Riley posted a Rolex Series career high qualifying spot of 10th in today's 15 minute qualifying session at VIR as he and teammate Michael Valiante continue to adjust to their new Lexus engine and Riley chassis combination.

Memo Rojas- No.01 TELMEX Lexus Riley: "I'm very happy with our qualifying results today. I think we've improved a lot. I got held up in my quickest lap of the day, which cost us two or three tenths and could have put us a position or two better, but it's still a good start. The TELMEX car is ready and we have a great crew behind us."

Rob Finlay-No.19 Z-Line Designs/Mission Residential/Make-A-Wish Foundation Lexus-Riley: "I'm very pleased with the results of today's session, especially since this was our first time qualifying the new #19 car. Of course we wanted to get better position, but we've not had much time to adjust. We got in some quality laps yesterday and today which have helped us settle in a bit. Overall it was a great day on the track and the CGRFS team is phenomenal. I'm very proud to be part of this team."
