Garth Rickards Braselton, GA – While the top five cars were separated by under a tenth of a second, it was Garth Rickards that narrowly scored pole position at Road Atlanta by .016 seconds over his team Pelfrey teammate Ayla Agren. Behind those two Mygale/Hondas were Franklin Futrelle in the Raceworks Spectrum/Honda ahead of Jim Goughary’s Van Diemen and Max Mallinen in another Spectrum/Honda for Swan Motorsports in his F1600 pro debut.

Pelfrey’s Esteban Garzon was sixth with Sam Chastain, seventh, just under three tenths off the pole time of 1:29.343, a new F1600 track record at Road Atlanta. The top seven cars were under the existing track record.

Nikita Lastochkin was eighth after losing his two fastest laps due to causing an early session stoppage, while Augie Lerch and Lew Cooper completed the top ten. Notably, Cooper has moved from his Van Diemen/Ford to a Spectrum/Honda for Polestar following Friday practice. Twenty-five F1600 cars logged lap.

Race one of the F1600 season gets underway at 2:20pm eastern time.
