Drew earns first career TA2 pole with Road America track record

Jake Drew in the No. 7 Silver Hare Racing Chevrolet Camaro will start on pole for the Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli’s CUBE 3 Architecture TA2 Series race at Road America after setting a new track record with a time of 2m09.706s. Drew earned his first-career pole in just his seventh qualifying attempt in the series, narrowly beating out current points leader Rafa Matos (No. 60 Concord American Flagpole/Nitro Motorsports Ford Mustang) by just 0.043.

“It’s definitely cool to get my first CUBE 3 Architecture TA2 Series pole,” said Drew. “I’m super happy to have a good result so far at Road America. It’s my first time here, just like everywhere else. We started off strong yesterday with the two test sessions, and we just keep clicking all the boxes, so I’m hoping for a good strong day tomorrow as well. I really want to thank CUBE 3 Architecture for sponsoring the TA2 Series, and Silver Hare Racing for giving me this opportunity and working so hard. All the crew guys worked tirelessly on this car to make it the best it can be, and I just do my job as well as I can inside.”

The race will be contested Saturday at 1:05 p.m. ET/12:05 p.m. CT. It will be broadcast live on MAVTV’s FAST Channel, MAVTV Select, with a delayed broadcast airing on MAVTV at 4:00 p.m. ET. It can also be streamed live here. The highlights show of the CUBE 3 Architecture TA2 Series race will air on MAVTV on Thursday, July 4 at 8:00 p.m. ET.
