Ricky Taylor put the championship leading No. 10 Konica Minolta Acura ARX-05 on pole with a lap of 1:30.022 around the 3.40-mile, 11-turn Watkins Glen International circuit. This was Taylor's first pole of the 2021 season and 12th pole of his IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar career. Filipe Albuquerque and Alexander Rossi will share the cockpit with Taylor for The Sahlen's Six Hours of the Glen event beginning Sunday evening.
“Our Acura was super strong,” said Ricky Taylor. “All the No. 10 Konica Minolta Acura guys did a fantastic job to get us the pole. I’m really looking forward to tomorrow. Filipe and Alex have been incredibly strong. We’re all really happy to have Alex here with us this weekend. It’s going to be really physical and really intense, but we've got the right guys for the job. The team’s been executing really well too. Six hours is a long time, but we just need to put everything together and, hopefully, we’re at the front at the end.”
