SFP Grand Prix Continental Tire- Kansas

From Grand Am Racing:

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (August 17, 2013) – John Edwards held off Matt Plumb in a three-lap sprint to the checkered flag Saturday at Kansas Speedway, joining Matt Bell in winning their second race of the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge season in the No. 9 Stevenson Auto Group Chevrolet Camaro. With the victory the duo extends their Grand Sport (GS) championship hopes with two races remaining. 

Well, I've been wondering how the Mustangs been holding out in the series, Shelby Blackstock went from ninth to third in the final 30 minutes to score his first GS podium finish in the No. 51 Starstruck Ford Mustang Boss 302R. The car was started from the back of the grid by Joey Atterbury due to a technical infraction after qualifying fourth. 

After running the opening hour under the green flag, the latter portion of the race was slowed by four caution periods. A multi-car accident in Turn 1 with 17 minutes remaining sidelined the third-place Porsche of Ken Wilden and also involved the Aston Martin of Kris Wilson and the Volkswagen Jetta of Aleks Altberg. Wilden and Altberg were both evaluated and released from a local hospital. 

In Street Tuner (ST), Taylor Hacquard and Derek Jones their first CTSCC victories in the No. 32 i-Moto/Cybernation Mazda Speed 3 after race leader Michael Valiante was penalized for manipulating the final restart.
