Scores from week 29:
NASCAR Watkins Glen, USCC Road America:
NASCAR was on the road circuit of Watkins Glen. The field was fairly well behaved for most of the race, but as the end neared drivers starting getting more aggressive and wrecks ensued. Coming out on top of the tumultuous end was Denny Hamlin who won his first career road track race. Joey Logano was second after Brad Keselowski spun out Martin Truex Jr who held second at the time; Keselowski finished third. AJ Allmendinger finished in the fourth place spot, after he made a similar move spinning out Kyle Larson in the final lap. The demise of Truex and Larson promoted Tony Stewart into the fifth spot, followed by Kyle Busch in sixth.
Action Express’s Corvettes are starting to look unstoppable as they took another one-two finish at the USCC event at Road America with the #31 finishing ahead of the #5. But it wasn’t a blow-out with 4 other Prototypes finishing on the same lap as the winners after 2 hour 40 minutes of racing. The #10 Wayne Taylor Racing Corvette meant that Corvettes swept the podium. But then up in fourth was the #60 Honda of Michael Shank Racing, that finished ahead of the #55 Mazda Motorsports Prototype. The #90 Visit Florida Corvette rounded out the cars finishing on the lead lap. The #70 Mazda fell victim to a mechanical problem which meant they were only able to finish 6 of the 73 laps, in 41st and last place. The #8 Starworks Oreca Chevrolet Prototype Challenge car crashed with just 13 minutes of the race remaining while battling for second in the PC class with the #85 JDC-Miller Oreca Chevrolet. That left the #8 with a 36th place finish.
Congratulations to iomracer and his twelfth win of the year, with one tie. The major difference was the crash of the #8 Starworks car in USCC, which lost Sebastian the most points over iomracer’s picks. Once again the lead toggles in the season long standings …
