The Swiss driver edged Vittorio Ghirelli and oval racing veteran Myatt Snider


ELITE 2 QUALIFYING RESULTS




Giorgio Maggi pulled a perfect lap from his hat at Raceway Venray, the only oval on the 2019 NASCAR Whelen Euro Series schedule. Driving the #50 Hendriks Motorsport Ford Mustang, the Swiss clocked a 19.636 seconds lap in the very last run of the 30-minute ELITE 2 Division qualifying session and grabbed his second NWES career pole position.




“It was a tough qualifying. I was leading in the beginning and then I dropped back to fifth,” said Maggi, who already started from the pole last time out in Most. “It was an intensive battle for the first spot, but I pulled it off in the very last run. The car felt very good with just a little bit of understeering. I was fast enough to be on pole for today’s race and I’m really happy right now. In the race I have to be really careful, because Vittorio and of course Myatt are very fast.”



The ELITE 2 championship leader edged fellow rookie Vittorio Ghirelli, who was only 0.028 seconds slower than Maggi, missing the pole position for the NASCAR GP Netherlands by the narrowest margin. It is the first ever oval outing for the Italian, who is driving the #24 PK Carsport Chevrolet Camaro.



Myatt Snider, who was fastest in Free Practice, ended up third just 0.155 seconds short on the polesetter. Driving the #48 Racing Engineering Ford Mustang, the American stays one of the favorite drivers for the NASCAR GP Netherlands win with his pocket full of oval experience in the NASCAR Gander Outdoor Truck Series.



Dexwet-df1 Racing’s Lasse Soerensen finished fourth and secured a spot on the second row of the grid. The Dane never drove on an oval before today but was very consistent and posted a 19.836 seconds lap. NWES veteran Martin Doubek, who boasts plenty of experience at Venray, rounded out the top-5.



Local hero Barry Maessen was sixth with a 0.271 seconds gap from Maggi. The son of track owner Harry Maessen knows every secret of Raceway Venray and will definitely be a contender in the race in front of his home crowd. Pierluigi Veronesi was seventh ahead of oval racing rookie Andre Castro, Nicholas Risitano and Dutch race driver Michael Bleekemolen, who led the Legend Trophy classification.





The ELITE 2 Round 9 will be streamed live at 3:15 pm CEST on Fanschoice.tv, the Euro NASCAR YouTube channel and Facebook page, Motorsport.tv and a vast network of websites and social media pages from around the world.
