Race 1 & 2 Report Posted!
The 2015 Hoosier Tire US Formula 1000 Championship Fueled by Sunoco got underway Friday with the first of three qualifying sessions. 2014 East champion Jeremy Hill put up the fastest time, followed by Glenn Cooper and Shane Prieto. However, the second session defending national champion J.R. Osborne took to the track and picked up where he left, taking the pole with a lap of 1:21.112 and relegating Hill to the outside of the front row. Several other drivers found more speed in the second session, which ultimately set the grid for round 1.
