Grand AM at Belle Isle 2013

This was one race with a lot of banging and pushing going on, so many of the Corvette Prototypes were busted up, thanks to Gustavo Yacaman (he's on probation now) by driving too aggressively and that is going to cost the teams.  It was estimated at about $300,000 in damage for the teams.  The win for  the DP class was No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing who is on top of the standings. 

But aside from that, No. 57 Stevenson Motorsports in the GT class pulls three straight victories in a row, how appropriate for Chevy in Detroit!  

As for the GX class, the little diesel that could is in the winners circle once again!  The second win for No. 00 the Skyactive Diesel Mazda team, Speedsource.

Happy Father's Day and wouldn't you know it Yacaman gets into Chip Ganassi Racing the 01 car and he's on probation!  Well something broke because he couldn't drive through the turn and after blasting off the track, an oil line or gas line broke and the car cooked, Michael Shank Racing has got to be thinking is this guy worth it even though he brought on sponsors.  Shank said it's going to be hard to get a car together for Watkins Glen. 

Joao Barbosa gave Action Express Racing its first Daytona Prototype victory of the season, “Just racing here is intense,” Barbosa said. “It was really hard racing.

No.31 Marsh Racing Corvette was driving down hard behind No. 94 BMW Turner Motorsports but was penalized with less than 2 laps to go in the race for contact. Tough call these guys' were racing hard for many laps, No. 94 got the win for the GT class.

 Once again the little engine that could, that's right Pod Skyactive Diesel.  Sylvain Tremblay and Tom Long took the first GX victory for the No. 70 SpeedSource Mazda 6, with the pair leading 96 of the 100 laps. 

This season has been great so far, don't miss a race!
