Corvette Racing’s Antonio Garcia claimed pole position today for the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix in the GT Le Mans (GTLM) class with a lap of 1:15.198 (117.7 mph) at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. Garcia, who drives the No. 3 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet Corvette C7.R in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, will look for his second CTMP victory in three seasons with Jan Magnussen.

ANTONIO GARCIA, CORVETTE RACING NO. 3 MOBIL 1/SiriusXM CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7.R – GTLM POLE-WINNER: "Everyone at Corvette Racing did a fantastic job. We really like this track, and our records reflect that. It will be a tough race but I am very pleased with the result today. We are always very strong here, and I was looking forward to qualifying. Track position is very important here so I think we are in a very strong position. It’s nice to be up there near the front and fighting. The car has felt pretty decent all year long. At points we were just lacking some speed. But we have to do our jobs. If we do our pit stops in the right way have the right strategy, execution and do everything at 100 percent, then you can be in a position for a win."
