The Racer's Group
GT class - No. 66

Kevin Buckler started race with the green flag and took the car from eighth position in class to third.

Cool suit device problems brought Buckler in under yellow one hour into the race. The car lost a lap during the pit stop resulting in No. 66 dropping from third to seventh in class.

After a driver change, Brian Cunningham brought the car from tenth to seventh in class.

Cool suit device problems solved and all drivers have functional cool suits.

No. 66 and the No. 43 Orbit car are on the same lap and are battling for fourth in class.

No. 22 Alex Job Racing car retired, resulting in Kevin Buckler moving to third in the GT driver points. Buckler was tied for fourth with Jorg Bergmeister prior to No. 22's retirement.

Kevin Buckler--

"My first stint was tough because my cool suit failed. We've had some tough luck with a penalty and loosing position on our first pit stop, but I'm sure that our Porsche won't let us down, it has done us so well all season, we can't fail now."

Brian Cunningham--

"The car feels very comfortable. It's been an interesting ride so far with our different positions. The tires are really holding up well and I feel like I haven't even had to push it much. Our pit stop strategy is the most important thing right now so we can move position."

Michael Schrom--

"I'm feeling pretty good, though that first pit stop was unfortunate. We're a good endurance team and I'm confident that we're going to pull through well."
