Dyson rockets to Trans Am pole as Road America heats up

Chris Dyson in the No. 16 GYM WEED Ford Mustang captured the pole for the Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli at Road America with a best time of 2m02.352s. It is his second pole of the 2024 season.

“I think this pole is a great place to start,” said Dyson. “It’s a long race here, 100 miles, but the car has been great. The GYM WEED car rolled off the truck fast, and we’ve really just been fine tuning it since then. The track was a bit hotter this afternoon than it has been, and the track has been evolving a lot with the rain, but I think we’ve got a pretty strong car for all conditions, and I’m optimistic for the race tomorrow. This is a place that’s been very good to us in the past, and I hope tomorrow’s one of those days.”

The TA/XGT/SGT/GT race will be contested Sunday at 2:05 p.m. ET/1:05 p.m. CT. The race will be broadcast live on MAVTV and streamed live here. The highlights show of the race will air on MAVTV on Thursday, July 4 at 9:00 p.m. ET.
