  • We were all braced for a relatively simple track but a complex race in terms of traffic and race strategy – when to stop and when not to stop. With some selective aggression, I was able to stay on the lead lap with the lead pack. I maintained a spot that, when handed over to Colin, would be something we could work with and head toward the win. Unfortunately, we had a bit of a lengthy stop and a penalty for running over an air hose on pit lane. It certainly wasn’t terminal for our chance to win though. Then Colin was unfortunately the victim of another driver’s mistake.

  • I jumped in the car and did a handful of laps and was behind a GTD car that ran wide off into the grass in Turn 5. I drove under him, then he spun out in the grass and stayed on the throttle. He drove into my left rear tire and spun me out wildly. There’s not too much you can do when that happens. I feel bad for the guys because they worked hard on the car. Jon did a great job bringing the car in on the lead lap for us to go to work. I would have liked to see how it played out, but that’s what sometimes happens in multi-class racing at this level
