WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) - Britain’s Alex Brundle won the Prototype class pole Saturday for Sunday’s Sahlen’s Six Hours of The Glen, running a lap of 1 minute, 37.902 seconds.

Before the 15-minute qualifying session, the son of former Formula One driver Martin Brundle had only seven laps of practice on the 3.4-mile circuit. He’s teaming with Gustavo Yacaman and Ho-Pin Tung in the No. 42 OAK Racing Morgan/Nissan.

OAK Racing will be joined on the front row by Action Express Racing, seeking its third consecutive victory at The Glen. Christian Fittipaldi turned a lap of 1:38.560 in the No. 5 Corvette DP co-driven by Joao Barbosa.

Andy Priaulx, another British driver competing at Watkins Glen for the first time, gave BMW its first pole in the GT Le Mans class in a session that saw eight drivers representing five manufacturers qualifying within one second. Priaulx turned a lap of 1:44.084 in the No. 55 Team RLL BMW Z4 GTE, edging out Jan Magnussen in the No. 3 Chevrolet Corvette C7.R.

Other class pole winners were Colin Braun in Prototype Challenge and Leh Keen in GT Daytona.
