Christian Bogle claimed pole position for the United States Formula 4 season opener at Mid-Ohio after a flurry of last-minute fast laps.
Crosslink/Kiwi Motorsport driver Jose Blanco-Chock sat at the top of the times through the majority of the 20-minute session, but dropped down the order as others found improvements in the final five minuets of the session.
Jay Howard Driver Development’s Bogle had been outside the top 10 for most of the session before jumping up to second, just 0.105s off Blanco’s then-fastest time.
With a series of fastest laps, Bogle lowered the session’s benchmark to 1m22.183s.
Hunter Yeany rose up to second for Velocity Racing Development, setting a lap 0.144s slower than Bogle’s best.
JHDD trio Nolan Siegel, Sam Paley, and Bijoy Garg finished third through to fifth, but Swedish team-mate Viktor Andersson was unable to attend due to travel restrictions on entering the US.
BRSCC National Formula Ford 1600 graduate Spike Kohlbecker qualified sixth for Crosslink/Kiwi, ahead of early pacesetter Blanco-Chock and JHDD’s Nick Persing.
Crosslink/Kiwi duo Varun Choksey and Dylan Tavella completed the top 10.
