Megenbier tops Jetta TDI Cup practice chart
When the green flag flew signaling the start of today’s lone 30-minute practice session, the drivers didn’t waste any time getting up to speed on a track where many of them had no prior experience. At the end of the day, it was series points leader and Melrose Park, Illinois native, Timmy Megenbier who topped the speed charts with a time of 2:40.219 (90.955 mph). Andy Lee (2:40.607) and Derek Jones (2:40.736) rounded out the top three positions. The lap times in practice were very close for the top third of the field with only a second separating the top nine drivers.
“It’s great to be back here at Road America,” Megenbier said. “Even though we raced earlier this year at Autobahn Country Club, I’ve always thought of this as my home track. I think the experience that I gained in the past racing in Skip Barber helped me have a bit of an advantage on the track today, and it showed on the speed charts. I feel like I’ve been able to put together some good runs in our past few races, so I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to carry that momentum into the race tomorrow.”
