Track Record Pole Run For Rasmussen

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Christian Rasmussen won the pole for the Indy NXT Grand Prix of Alabama on Saturday, leading a train of 13 drivers quicker than the track record at Barber Motorsports Park. Rasmussen, from Denmark, saved his best lap for last in the frantic, eight-minute session, earning his second career Indy NXT pole with a time of one minute, 10.7371 seconds in the No. “It was really just about getting a free lap,” Rasmussen said. In 17 INDY NXT races at Barber, the winner has come from the first three starting spots. The pole sitter has won 14 times and finished second three times, a good omen for Rasmussen. “When you look back at history, 14 out of the last 17 races have been won from pole,” Rasmussen said.
