Jorg Bergmeister will start from the pole in the Rolex 24 at Daytona, putting him out front in the grueling and prestigious 24-hour race.
Bergmeister considered ending his qualifying run early, but decided to stay out for one extra lap during the 15-minute session on Thursday. His final lap on the 3.5-mile (5.6-kilometer) road course was the fastest, crossing the line in 1 minute, 40.099 seconds and edging Max Angelelli in the DP class.
Angelelli (1:40.133) will start second, following by Scott Pruett, Ryan Dalziel and Scott Dixon.
Andy Lally claimed the pole in the GT class with a lap of 1:48.487. But his car failed inspection because its wing was placed too far back, leaving teammate Dominik Fambacher in the top spot.
