Schwartz Claims Pole for TC Race 1 at Las Vegas

18 October 2019 TC

TC class champion Johan Schwartz continued his strong season by claiming pole position for race 1 in his #80 Rooster Hall Racing BMW M240iR with a 1:47.068 fastest lap, just one-tenth of a second faster than Jeff Ricca’s #78 GenRacer Hyundai Genesis Coupe.

"Car obviously felt great, since we qualified on pole. We had a bit of an issue yesterday and weren't quite sure what it was and found out we had some suspension that was a bit loose but we got that all fixed. Today with the sticky tires the car was digging, bouncing across the track, it was a lot of fun! The track has some places that you can carry some extra speed and do some things to get more as opposed to a traditional line, but we're in Vegas - it's sunny, beautiful, and I can't wait for the banquet,” said Schwartz. 

Austen Smith and the #90 Dasboot Motorsports BMW M240iR was third quickest with a fastest lap of 1:47.269.

Chandler Hull and the #94 Copart/BimmerWorld Racing BMW M240iR will start from the fourth position after a fastest lap of 1:47.540 with Tom Capizzi and the #52 Auto Technic Racing BMW M240iR rounding out the top five.

Toby Grahovec will lineup in the sixth position with this #26 Classic BMW M240iR with Robert Nimkoff and the #20 Auto Technic Racing BMW M240iR seventh. 

Cameron Evans in the #82 Copart/BimmerWorld Racing BMW M240iR will start eighth with Steve Streimer’s #81 Rooster Hall Racing BMW M240iR and Hanna Zeller’s #06 DRS BMW M235iR tenth.
