Defending race winner Richard Westbrook took the pole Saturday for the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series race Sunday at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

Westbrook turned a lap in 1 minute, 21.557 seconds - averaging 98.787 mph - around the 2.238-mile circuit in the No. 90 Spirit of Daytona Racing Corvette DP.
