Tsushima Stuns in Qualifying

A blistering lap by truck series regular Hanamaru Tsushima has seen her become the second shock pole qualifier in a row as she set the fastest time in Friday's session by over three tenths over second place qualifier, fellow rookie Ruby McBrien.

This marks the first time the front row has been locked out entirely by female drivers.

"That's the fastest I think I've ever gone in one of these cars! Mirai zura! Mirai zura, Ruby-chan!" Hanamaru Tsushima said, elated to take her first pole in only her second attempt. Things are looking very promising for the 17 year old from Numazu, Japan. The Mari Ohara-owned operation getting it's second pole of 2017 after Yoshiko Kunikida took a shocking pole in the Truck Series event at New York last week.

"I'm... super hecking excited about starting on the front row!" said 17 year old Ruby McBrien, "It's an honour to have a fast car... hopefully Dia will be proud... Dad gave me a headpat so I know he's proud.... he also gave me skittles.... aaaaAAAAAAAAA"

Grant Macintosh, Ben Atkins and Bradley Carlisle rounded out the top 5 for qualifying. There were no DNQ's for the race as only 40 cars entered.

Saturday's race will also mark the debut of French driver, Natalie Balandier, who will start 32nd in her STARS debut.
