Race Weekend Review
While other car makes had been scoring wins, the duo of Dillon Machavern/Dylan Murcott in their No. 28 Porsche Cayman had been taking the lead in the championship points race. They entered this event with a four-point lead over another Porsche paring, Trent Hindman/Cameron Cassels.
This time they came home the winner 2.8 seconds ahead of the No. 57 Camaro of Matt Bell/Robin Liddell and the No. 59 Mustang of Dean Martin/Jack Roush Jr.
The No. 59 Mustang started on the pole ahead of the No. 57 Camaro and the No. 28 Porsche – and Roush led the first 27 laps until the No. 57 Camaro took the lead during the first caution and through the second one which came almost immediately after that. Coming off the second caution, the Porsche grabbed the lead after the Camaro suffered body damage and they held on to it until the finish.
The next race in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge is at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on Sept. 23.
