ELITE 1 points leader Stienes Longin will be third on the grid after missing the pole position by just 0.066 seconds. The PK Carsport driver edged his teammate Nicolo Rocca, who comes from his first win of the season at Autodrom Most. Hendriks Motorsport’s Martin Doubek closed the top-5 with a 19.571 lap ahead of local hero Sebastiaan Bleekemolen.
Six-time NWES oval winner Frederic Gabillon ended up seventh ahead of three-time NWES champion Ander Vilarino. The RDV Competition driver was 0.051 seconds faster than the Spaniard and his #48 Racing Engineering Ford Mustang.
Reigning champion Alon Day secured the ninth spot on the grid. The CAAL Racing driver was 0.357 seconds slower than the pole sitter and will have a steep mountain to climb if he wants to win the NASCAR GP Netherlands at Raceway Venray. His teammate Thomas Ferrando will start alongside him in 10th place.
Henri Tuomaala grabbed the best spot in the Challenger Trophy classification by finishing 16th. The Finn edged Mauro Trione and Kenko Miura. 19 drivers were separated by less than nine tenths of a second, making the race at the only oval track in the 2019 NASCAR Whelen Euro Series season definitely unpredictable.
