F1600: Tristan DeGrand on pole in Toronto

From press release

Tristan DeGrand, of Eureka, MO continues to re-write the record books in both the Toyo Tires F1600 Championship and the new Super Series.

Brandon Newey of Carmel, IN quickly adapted to the Toyo R888 tires and lead most of the session. DeGrand waited until the very last lap to jump to the top of the board with a best time of 1:20.159.

Newey will start 2nd, just a tenth off the pole. Michel Bonnet starts 3rd with a lap of 1:20.481. Chase Pelletier and returning Series Champion Jack Mitchell, Jr. round out the top 5

The top 10 were separated by just a second.

“I just love this racetrack,” said a jubilant DeGrand. “I just got more and more confident with the car as the session wore on and everything came together for me on that last lap. I can’t wait to race tomorrow.”

The “B” Class has a new man up front. David Graham of Barrie, ON grabs his first series pole with a best lap of 1:22.137. Amy Castell starts 2nd with a lap of 1:22.593.

B Class points leader Connor Wagland came to the pits just a little early and will have to settle for a 3rd place start position with a lap of 1:22.821. Steve Bodrug and Mike Lee will round out the top 5

The first race of the F1600 Duals presented by Lubrico Warranty will take place Saturday at 9:15 pm.
