Thomas Secures Maiden MX5 Cup Pole Position

MILLVILLE, N.J. – Rookie and Mazda Road to 24 Scholarship recipient Jared Thomas earned his first Global Mazda MX-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich Tires pole on Saturday. Very few Global Mazda MX-5 Cup drivers have been to NJMP before, Thomas included, but you wouldn’t know that from watching his lap times through practice and qualifying, as the Scholarship racer proved to be a quick study. Global Mazda MX-5 Cup drivers must start the race on the same tires they qualified with, and as NJMP is tough on tires, keeping the qualifying lap count to a minimum was important. “It was difficult trying to get that perfect lap,” Thomas said. “Having both cars on the front row is great,” Thomas said.
