Boris Said Leads Rainy Trans-Am Qualifying

ALTON, Va. – Veteran Boris Said bested young gun Ernie Francis Jr. to earn the pole during Friday’s Trans-Am Series presented by Pirelli qualifying at rainy Virginia Int’l Raceway. The pair traded the top spot five times before Said locked down the pole for Saturday’s 100-mile event. Said won the second Trans-Am race at VIR in 2002, and came back in 2019 to win last year’s event for Weaver Racing. “I didn’t even have my radio on,” said the veteran. This is the third car I’ve driven for Pancho [Weaver], and they get better and better every time. Francis settled for second, .668 seconds back with a lap of 2:121.793 in the No. Skeen captured the TA2 pole on his final lap, running 2:09.608 in the No.
