For the second time in as many days, the Dunlop Series has produced a first-time pole winner, with Jayden Ojeda clinching top spot for Race 2 in Bathurst.

The MW Motorsport driver fired in a 2:05.8726s to claim pole, with Image Racing's Jordan Boys nearly three tenths down in second.

MW Motorsport teammate Tyler Everingham fired in a 2:06.4330s, but Ojeda managed to lower the benchmark despite a bobble at Murray's Corner.

Boys failed to beat the marker, but scuppered MW Motorsport's bid for a front-row lockout.

Ojeda's flyer was the only 2:05s lap of the session, with the 21-year-old just half a second down on Jack Le Brocq's 2017 record.

Angelo Mouzouris, the pole winner from Saturday, was just over nine tenths down in fifth.

Tyler Everingham, who failed to start Saturday's race, made it a MW Motorsport one-three on a 2:06.1900s.

Broc Feeney, who won his maiden Super2 race on Saturday, slotted into fourth on a 2:06.5781s.

Jon McCorkindale was again the standout in the Super3 class, recording the 14th quickest time on a 2:09.5454s.

The field will return to the track for Race 2 at 1:40pm AEDT on Sunday.

This weekend’s event will be broadcast live on Foxtel and the Seven Network, and will be streamed on Kayo. Check out the full TV schedule here.
