Ricky Taylor will start Sunday’s America’s Tire 250 from the overall pole, as he and Jordan Taylor look to lock up the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship title in the penultimate race of the season this weekend.

Taylor stormed to his fifth Prototype pole of the year, and third straight, having reeled off a 1:16.853 in the No. 10 Cadillac DPi-V.R.

The second-generation driver outran the No. 5 Action Express Racing Cadillac of Christian Fittipaldi by a hefty 0.829 seconds.

Fittipaldi’s late flyer denied the No. 90 Visit Florida Racing Ligier JS P217 Gibson of Marc Goossens a front row start, with the Belgian set to roll off from third.

Defending Prototype champion Eric Curran, in the No. 31 Action Express Cadillac, and Jose Gutierrez’s No. 52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Ligier completed the top-five overall and in class.

The America’s Tire 250 gets underway Sunday at 2:05 p.m. PDT, with live coverage on FS1.
