Dalziel ran a lap of one minute, 55.166 seconds (126.537 mph) in the No. 1 Extreme Speed Motorsports Tequila Patrón HPD ARX-03b/Honda co-driven by Scott Sharp to capture his second consecutive Prototype (P) pole position – becoming the first two-time TOTAL Pole Award winner in the class.

The race, Round 10 of the TUDOR Championship, takes the green flag at 1:15 p.m. CT (FOX Sports 1, same day delay, 6:30 p.m. ET).

“I knew from my first lap that the car was going to be fast,” Dalziel said. “But much like (the Brickyard Grand Prix at) Indy, it was shocking to win the pole. To be honest, I’d be happy with second, but when I saw the predictor on my last lap I saw it was a pole at that point. There were things on that last lap I don’t ever want to do again.”

Indianapolis race winner Christian Fittipaldi qualified second in the No. 5 Action Express Racing Corvette DP co-driven by Joao Barbosa, 1:55.961 (125.670 mph). He was followed by Olivier Pla, running a lap of 1:56.019 (125.607 mph) in the No. 42 OAK Racing Morgan/Nissan co-driven by Gustavo Yacaman.

Fittipaldi and Barbosa enter the race leading brothers Ricky and Jordan Taylor by two points (249-247) in the Prototype standings. Ricky Taylor was the fourth-fastest qualifier with a lap of 1:56.175 (125.438 mph) in the No. 10 Konica Minolta Corvette DP.

Richard Westbrook originally qualified second with a lap of 1:55.487 (126.186 mph) in the No. 90 VisitFlorida.com Corvette DP co-driven by Michael Valiante, but the car failed the stall test in post-qualifying inspection and will start the race from the rear of the field.

Coming off a 1-2 finish in the Prototype Challenge (PC) class at Indianapolis, RSR Racing continued its momentum by sweeping the top two positions in qualifying at Road America. Bruno Junqueira ran a lap of 1:59.411 (122.039 mph) in the No. 09 Linospresso USA ORECA FLM09 co-driven by Duncan Ende to capture his third TOTAL Pole Award of the season

“Road America is my favorite track in the U.S., and every time I come here I get excited,” said Junqueira, who scored his first Champ Car victory at the circuit in 2001. “It’s a very fast track and very fast corners. You need to believe in yourself and believe in the car to make the corners at high speed. So this is why I love it.”

Brickyard Grand Prix PC winner Jack Hawksworth was second with a lap of 1:59.493 (121.955 mph) in RSR’s No. 08 AutomaxUSA.com entry co-driven by Chris Cumming, followed by Luis Diaz, 1:59.931 (121.510 mph), in the No. 25 8Star Motorsports Takis/Speedsters entry co-driven by Sean Rayhall.

Championship leader Colin Braun – also a three-time PC pole winner – qualified sixth with a lap of 2:00.273 (121.164 mph) in the No. 54 CORE autosport ORECA FLM09 co-driven by Jon Bennett.
