Dakota Dickerson Sets Record during PITT Race Qualifying

Dakota Dickerson held off championship leader Jacob Abel Saturday morning to claim the pole for the F3 Americas Championship Powered by Honda Round 6 at Pittsburgh International Race Complex. Driving the orange No. 72 Stress Engineering Services, Inc. machine, Dickerson beat the qualifying record by more than a second with a fast lap of 1:32.375. 

"I was able to snag the pole by about four tenths of a second today," Dickerson said. "The Global Racing Group guys put together a great set-up not just for me but for all my teammates. We had three of the four cars in the top-five. It's a beautiful day at Pitt Race and we are really looking forward to the race later this afternoon."

Abel with a fast time of 1:32.829 will share the front row with Dickerson, while Baltazar Leguizamon and series-newcomer Quinlan Lall will start in Row 2.
